"If something is going wake you in the middle of the night it might as well be a spicy tango! This is how ¡Fuego! came to life. I awoke with a start to this music already being written in my head. I began writing it down and nearly finished ¡Fuego! in a fury from 2:30 AM to 6:30 AM. By 8:00 I was at the college teaching music theory!
¡Fuego! captures the "fire" of the tango with all four guitars very active, playing chromatic fugue-like passages in A minor before a modulation to the bright and playful key of D major."
