Commissioned in 2007 by the Nishidenjigata Elementary School Brass Band Club. As the name suggests, it is a Spanish-style divertimento in three movements. What' s being expressed in the 1st and 3rd movements is "passion", and "the tranquility and kindness of the night" in the 2nd movement.
For performance, it is advisable to devise ways to add contrast such as "quiet" and "moving", "strength" and "calmness". The impression of the song changes greatly depending on the tone of the trumpet with Harman mute, so study various things such as balance.
