Conga del Fuego
New entry. Pure, boundless energy from Arturo Marquez — we dare you not to conga round the room
Marquez might not be the best-known composer out there, but this is a brilliantly energetic one-off of a piece.
The name Arturo Marquez might not mean much to the general classical music listener, but thanks to the might of this one piece, he's having something of a renaissance.
It's permanently frantic, tense and joyful all at once — a unique and miraculous expression of outright joy. When it finally calms down around the 3-minute mark, though, it's tempting to think that all the hard work's been done... well, that's until Marquez unleashes one more furious conga.
