Huapango is a form of Mexican mariachi music with its typical sound of trumpets and string instruments.

Moncayo’s Huapango is the unofficial second national anthem of Mexico and has entered into the classical symphonic repertory.

Intermezzo, by Granados, one of Spain’s most important composers, creates a haunting and hypnotic melody in this orchestral interlude and is one of his most memorable works.

The Gliere concerto is one of the most ambitious works for Horn and is very florid and romantic, while Mozart’s second Horn Concerto is a treasure house of melody, and was written for his friend Leutgeb.

Hollywood composer Danny Elfman turned heads with his Batman score. This music redefined the composer in many ways – rather than simply representing a comic book movie, it is a veritable romantic fantasy epic.
