VCS Radio Symphony LIVE
Clifton Williams -- Symphonic Dances #3 – “Fiesta”
“Fiesta” is part 3 of a 5 part work by Clifton Williams, commissioned in 1964 by the San Antonio Symphony. The lively tones evoke a scene of celebration,
bright, flashing colors and a heroic bullfight to round things off. Williams began his career as a virtuoso French Hornist and his love of the brass instruments shines throughout his work.

His work in the Superman series of films was truly iconic. However, much of the original scores from this masterful animation series has been lost to time.
