Danzón No 2 / Márquez Navorro, Arturo
Danzón No. 2 is an orchestral composition by the Mexican composer Arturo Márquez. The rhythmic interest in the piece is maintained through the use of varying accents and tempo. This staple of the contemporary Mexican music literature expresses and reflects on the dance style named danzón, which has its origins in Cuba but is a very important part of the folklore of the Mexican state of Veracruz. The music was inspired by a visit to a ballroom in Veracruz.
