El Condor Pasa (Students of musical course)

My students of the musical course perform my arrangement of a traditional Peruvian song with the flutists of the same course of Prof. Lina Passeri.

They do a very nice job on this; you can be very proud of them.

I note that both your note and the text at the opening of the video says that the song is "traditional" and it's not attributed to a composer.

While it was based on (apparently several) Peruvian folk tunes, El Cóndor Pasa was composed by Daniel Alomía Robles in 1913 for a zarzuela of the same name, and he copyrighted it in the US in 1933. These facts were established in 1970 when Alomia Robles' son successfully sued Simon and Garfunkel for copyright violation. It was also established that the copyright violation was inadvertent: Paul Simon had been misinformed as to the song's origin by the people he first heard play it.

I like your arrangement, Giuseppe, especially the way the melody & harmony parts pass back and forth between the guitars and flutes. Nice balance of voices and timbres!
