I wrote this in "Mashima-mode" dedicated to and celebrating the eminent Japanese composer Toshio Mashima's 60th birthday. The piece incorporates various familiar styles, melodies and nuances of the Popstage series. It is ideal as a closing piece or encore to finish a concert brilliantly! Effective use of Latin percussion is essential for good momentum. Don't be afraid to play bright and full. Massima is Italian for "peak" or "maximum", no special meaning, just word-play on the name Mashima.
