Danza de los Duendes (Dance of the Goblins) refers to elfin beings, who are mischievous and mean spirited, victimizing children at play during siesta when their parents are asleep or inattentive.

Hiding in trees and bushes, los duendes are often blamed for minor and sometimes major recreational accidents and are thought to be the spirits of dead children now dwelling in a state of “ghostly purgatory.”

The work was arranged for winds by the composer after acclaimed orchestral performances by the Argentinean Orquesta Sinfónica de Tucumán and the Pittsburgh Symphony.
