Danzón No.2


Danzon No.2 is one of the most popular and frequently performed pieces of contemporary classical music.

This arrangement was created for the National Saxophone Choir of Great Britain, and a recording featuring an abridged version of this arrangement is one of our most popular YouTube videos!

“The Danzón No. 2 is ...a very personal way of paying my respects and expressing my emotions towards truly popular music.” - Arturo Márquez
