Rhythmic intricacies permeate El Salon Mexico, creating many challenges for players and conductor. Throughout the work there are great numbers of mixed meters, metrical changes, asymmetrical rhythms, and tempo changes.

Many solo passages assist in tying together sections and elements of the work, and require artistic and skillful players to complete this aspect of the work.

Accents are a prominent feature and must be brought out to aid in the syncopation and nationalistic character of the melodies.

This is a complex piece that requires mature players/ensemble to achieve the desired effect.
