Le Mont de Tariq

 

The "Mont de Tariq" piece was written as an orchestral arrangement and draws its inspiration from the historical figure of Tariq Ibn Ziyad, General of the Umayyad army and leading military strategist.

 

This piece progress as follows:

  • Flute introduction, focus then shifting onto the oboe to develop the motif (reaching the higher ranges), symbolizing the attraction of Andalusia
  • Initial exposure to Tariq's clarinet-dominated theme ("Tariq's dream")
  • Umayyad army troops marching on Spain (brass instruments)
  • The battle for Spain (second and third refrain of Tariq's theme by the orchestra)
  • Finale: Tariq's victory.
