Composed and orchestrated in 1999 this is my first symphonic work. Mosaico pays homage to the music of the great Mexican concert hall composers of the 40's and 50's as well as the composers of the golden era of Mexican cinema. I wrote this work while still in college and on the fourth year of living away from my country. A good cure against homesickness!
Mosaico Mexicano premiered in March 2000 in Ed Landreth Auditorium in Fort Worth, Texas, with the TCU Symphony Orchestra under my baton. Its profesional premiere took place in May later that year with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra conducted by maestro Germán Gutiérrez.
Mosaico Mexicano is available through iTunes and CDBaby.
