Program Notes:

AZARES is a fantasia for percussion ensemble for 7 players, written on airs of bambuco (traditional genre of the Colombian Andean Zone). It portrays in the melody of the letter A the magnificence of the fauna and in the letter C the diversity of the natural resources of this region. It receives the name of azares (randoms) by the ostinato that appears from the beginning in the xylophone, which in the letter G moves randomly between its instruments and is developed by the Timpani.
