A Fandango is a lively Spanish dance—the most famous in the classical repertoire is from Boccherini’s Guitar Quintet in G major (and the most famous reference is Procol Harum’s “light fandango” in Whiter Shade of Pale). The opening chords of Riley’s Fandango on the Heaven Ladder contain the kernel which generates the entire piece. The extroverted Fandango theme morphs into a slinky pianissimo melody and undergoes permutations in various keys ranging from a funky bass groove to Lisztian virtuosity. Riley says that the concluding quote from the last movement of Beethoven’s “Tempest” Sonata was unintentional.
