The composer’s 2004 arrangement of the second of his Two Cuban Dances for piano, available on ‘British Light Music Premieres Vol.4’ performed by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted by Paul Murphy (Dutton Epoch CDLX 7190).
The score contains much divisi and requires a minimum strength of 6/6/4/4/2.
Beautifully played and recorded... perhaps most immediately appealing of all is Lionel Sainsbury's Cuban Dance No.2. Its very real appeal has already been demonstrated by being taken up as an encore piece by Tasmin Little.
