“Two Brazilian Steel Dances” by Ney Rosauro
Performed by the Southern Miss Steel Pan Orchestra
Directed by Dr. John Wooton
ABOUT THE PIECE:
II) Baião, Interlude
III) Samba (Partido Alto)
These two exciting pieces are a unique in the percussion literature. The first dance is a baiao in a fugue like form. The second is a samba partido alto. A calm interlude in tempo di valsa separates the two dances. A natural marriage of style and instrumentation, this work will add an extraordinary dimension to any steel band concert.
