I don't normally listen to a lot of Baroque music, but I have a soft spot for modern orchestrations of it. Here's one I performed a week ago, in a concert of all Latin American composers. This piece commemorates the 100th birthday of Mexican nationalist composer Carlos Chávez. Early in his career, Chávez orchestrated a Buxtehude chaconne; Enrique Arturo Diemecke honored Chávez by taking a Handel keyboard chaconne and orchestrating it in a distinctly Mexican style. Think mariachi-meets-Baroque! (This isn't my orchestra. I don't have a recording of our performance right now.)

Hmmm, I like it !   Not my sort of thing to play by any stretch of the imagination - but - I enjoy listening to any and all styles of music - they all give "inspiration" to one degree or another - "mariachi-meets-Baroque" - and eventually Scottish-trad now I've heard this - bring on the trumpets !

Nice - Thanks for the post @AndrewH - enjoyed it from start to end 🙂 

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
