Latin American composer Roberto Sierra has written these colorful sketches (bocetos) of tropical scenery to explore the different registral, timbral and virtuosic possibilities of the clarinet. The first movement (Preludio) starts the set with exciting rhythms of salsa while Interludio Nocturno (Nocturnal Interlude) glances at the beautiful and ephemeral images of the tropical nights. Rustic songs inspire Cancion del Campo (Country Song) and Cancion de la Montana (Mountain Song). The cycle closes with Final con Pajaros (Finale with Birds) that quotes an old Catalonian folk tune.
