with host Fred Child

: Arturo Marquez

Arturo Marquez MARIA LUISA SEVERIANO/LA JORNADA

When Arturo Marquez was a teenager in Mexico in the 1960s, he played in a Mariachi band. He went to school and became a composer of orchestral music, but he's still especially fond of a dance from the city of Veracruz, Mexico. On today's episode of Performance Today, hear the Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez, from a concert at the Aspen Music Festival.
