My Venezuelan Suite takes the listener through four of the definitive styles of Venezuelan music, each of its movements is based on a single rhythm or song form and each named after a city generally associated with it. "Barinas", the birthplace of many folk music patriarchs, is based on a joropo, Venezuela's lively national rhythm and dance. "Caracas", is based on the intricately syncopated merengue in 5/8 time. "Mérida", named after the beautiful city in the Andes, is written in the style of a Venezuelan waltz. And "Maracaibo", is based on a gaita, a style traditionally played during Christmas time.
