La Noche Festiva for Sax Quartet is one of Dennis Anderson’s newest compositions. In five movements, each can be performed separately or ensemble as a complete suite. Each movement represents an authentic Latin musical form and should be carefully approached with an indigenous Latin flavor, sensibility, and ‘attitude’. Preludio: The beginning of this movement begins with pronounced dissonance and polytonality, developing into a fugue statement that resolves the piece with excitement and vigor. As the title suggests: An opening bravura statement for what is to follow.
