Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909) composed Aragón (Fantasia) in 1886 as one of a series of piano solo pieces depicting the musical styles of the Spanish provinces. It is based on a popular traditional dance called the Jota. This version of Aragón was adapted for oboe and piano by David Walter. 

 Alberto Guidobaldi (1967- ) is a professor at the Conservatorio de Musica de Puerto Rico in San Juan. He composed this Sonatina for Oboe and Piano in 2004. It has three movements: 

  1. Allegro Moderato
  2. Tempo Rubato
  3. Vivo

Vivo has a catchy Latin rhythm that alternates between 6/8 and 3/4 like the one Leonard Bernstein used in the song “America” for West Side Story:
