Domingo Chileno is a single-movement, programmatic work for orchestra that captures the experience of a Sunday in Chile. The piece starts quietly to illustrate waking up earlier than everyone else due to jet lag and transitions into a spirited portrayal of the Catholic mass. The portrayal of the mass is followed by a dance in the style of a traditional Chilean cueca. The piece quotes religious music used in Chilean churches and textures from Chilean folk dances. The piece is 280 measures long and approximately ten minutes in duration.
Prior to the score an analysis of the piece provides an outline of the overall structure of the work as well as illustrations of the musical quotations used throughout the piece. The compositional decisions made during the creative process are explained by highlighting individual musical moments in the piece and examining their impact on the work. Aspects of Chilean culture, which are emulated in this work, are also discussed.
