Album Notes
Mosaico Mexicano (1998), a Mexican overture for large orchestra, following in the tradition of the great Mexican nationalist composers (Moncayo, Chavez, Revueltas), this is perhaps Rodríguez’s most popular work to date.

The overture is a compendium of sections that draw on three principal styles and tempos. The first, marked Tempo di Huapango, is a brisk, foot-tapping mariachi music. The second introduces a theme in the style of indigenous Mexican Indian music. The third section slows the pace to a more intimate serenata.

The work’s professional premiere took place in 2000 by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of maestro Germán Gutierrez.


“For the third selection, the Sinfonietta performs work by one of Mexico´s greatest living composers, Arturo Rodríguez, in Mosaico Mexicano. Written in 1998 and now one of Rodríguez´s most popular compositions, Mosaico Mexicano is a rhythmically energetic piece that deftly weaves together indigenous styles of Mexican music, including Mariachi, into three distinct movements.”

- Chicago Now

“Arturo Rodríguez' Mosaico Mexicano is a festive, rhythmically energized composition… It received a spontaneous cheer from the audience at its conclusion.”

- The Dallas Morning News

“What was remarkable about [Rodriguez´s music] was the… mesmerizing melodies and amazingly skillful orchestration -- always just the right combinations of instruments at just the right times…

- The Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“The evening got off to a rousing start with Arturo Rodriguez’s Mosaico Mexicano,
full of sparkling brass and infectious, dancing rhythms.”

- Chicago Classical Review

“Arturo Rodriguez proved that tonality is still current thanks to a variety of musical resources, the use of rich orchestration and interesting and expressive creative spirit.”

- El Norte
