Commissioned by the Cape Cod Music Festival on the occasion of their 30th Anniversary. In four movements: Benny @ 100, Bandoneon, Lecuonerias, and Chiquita Blues. D'Rivera's four-movement suite features four distinct influences: Benny Goodman, and Argentinian Milonga, a solo clarinet improvisation around melodies by Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona and, in the fourth movement, a mixture of 12-bar blues, Cuban Danz?n and contemporary atonal music. At 19 minutes this is a major work that is technically and rhythmically challenging and an engaging merging of jazz, popular and classical elements.--The Clarinet
