About This Work

The vivacious Mexican Hat Dance, composed by Jesús González Rubio, and written in the nineteenth century to commemorate the successful end of the Mexican Revolution, has always been favourite amongst instrumentalists the world over. Arranged by Geoff Kingston as a Trumpet duet this is a stunning instrumental showcase and one that will mesmerise your audience with its lively melody and musical fireworks.

THE MEXICAN HAT DANCE

This courting dance became so popular that at one point it was declared "National Folk dance" of Mexico. This is due largely to Anna Pavlova, the great Russian Ballerina, who visited Mexico in 1919, fell in love with the culture and the spectacular costumes and decided to include the "Mexican Hat Dance" in her permanent repertoire. The ecstatic Mexican cultural authorities felt that such honour could only mean that the ‘Hat Dance’ was indeed the most important dance in Mexico.
