Prescribed work at the 2nd International Brass Quintet Competition, Narbonne 1988.

Tiento
The Tiento is one of the oldest forms of the "cante flamenco". Its very condensed form originates in variations on a short melodic motif or an area of harmony. The old conte is diyided ito yery brief capias (couplets), often without literary connections and often independent, although based on the same motifs with slight variations.

Séguiriya
The Seguiriya, always "jonda" and tragic, is one of the two or three basic songs of the old "cante grande". It is often preceded by a "preparation" from the singer.

Solea
The contracted Andalusian pronunciation of the word "Soledad" (solitude). In Flamenco it is "the key to the conte". The Solea is the purest and most archaic of the "cantes jondos". It was the first to be sung with guitar accompaniment
