Amazing

I, too, heard the "Huapango" played on PBS Great Performances; I saved my DVR recording and have listened to it a number of times since. What an exciting composition and how well-played. Each time I listen to it I am very much reminded of the "Magnificent Seven." It seems highly unlikely, to me without doing a critical exegesis of the materials, that the two could share so many similarities without cross-polinization having occurred. Further, I was struck by the fact that the LA ensemble was playing this music for their audiences--my comment to my wife was that this was not the kind of music we are likely to hear from the Chicago, New York, Boston, etc. groups for which I am most thankful to LA for doing.

haupango inspired mag seven theme

I just heard haupango by moncayo on PBS Great performances tonight. I immediately felt that it was taken from the magnificant seven theme, until i compared the dates. it seems elmer got his inspiration from Mr Moncayo's Haupango written 19 years earlier. Without any info from me, (i replayed on TIVO) my wife popped out with "reminds me of the mag seven.
