Sheet Music: Score
Suite Latina / Richard Charlton.
by Richard Charlton (2006)
Based on various South American styles, this work opens with a toccata-like 'Preludio' in the form of a choros followed by a slow 'Tango' with slightly dark harmonies. 'Cancion del Rosa' is a nostalgic memory of the smell of a rose garden on a warm sunny afternoon and the last movement, 'Vals by Moonlight', is a homage to the great Venezuelan guitar composer Antonio Lauro.
