The "Ragtimes & Habaneras" were commissioned by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band, one of the most famous Brass Bands in Great Britain. Individual scenes and short pieces of incidental music in typical American dance rhythms have been taken from the Opera 'La Cubana', written shortly before, and arranged and combined in a kind of suite. It is an effective, happy work, full of contrasts and allusions to other music. It is suitable for competent ensembles.
