Son Montuno is a slow ballad sung to the joys and sorrows of love found and love lost. A Montuno refers to a folk style originating in the countryside and in the mountains of Cuba. Interestingly, the rhythmic pattern is the key pattern in most Cuban music. It is called the Son Clave (clave meaning the rhythmic pattern, not the instrument). The Son Clave is the same rhythmic pattern found in today's salsa.

These works were composed on Finale music software by MakeMusic Inc. Since a score is also produced in manuscript form, the piece can be performed and recorded by live musicians. My interest is in sharing my work with listeners and musicians and have the work performed as it is intended; by live musicians.
