Programme Note:
El Sol del Sur, for two pianos and two percussionists, was written for pianist duo Lark Popov and George Vona, and percussionists Beverley Johnston and Salvador Ferreras. Unable to find a work for two pianos and percussion by a South American composer, they commissioned Stokes to write a work in the style of Latin American music. Stokes provided a virtuosic work which unites familiar Latin American musical styles with compositional techniques reminiscent of Stravinsky. The result is a fast paced work with plenty of surprises for the listener. The work is in three movements: fast, slow, fast. The percussionists each play marimba and an assortment of drums and latin instruments.
