Here we have another short track that plays when you meet one of the two "major" native American tribes in the game. I say "major" because only the Incans and Aztecs get their own theme music compared to the many other tribes represented in the game such as the Iroquois, Cherokee, Arawak, etc. "Pizarro at Cuzco" is obviously the theme for the Incans but just as the title of the track suggests, it's a desolate, depressing affair - very much the yin to the Aztec's yang, as "Tenochtitlan" is very much a happy theme filled with hope. It's not one of my favourite tracks to listen to, but it's definitely a memorable one, which is why it's listed here on Choicest VGM.
This track is from the Amiga version of the game which sounds quite superior to the DOS version, so I'll probably just end up using these tracks instead of the good ol' MIDI tracks of the DOS version :). The original soundtrack was composed by Jeffery L. Briggs, Ken Lagace and Roland J. Rizzo but the Amiga version was composed by Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson (and they're definitely no strangers to composing music for PC games :)).
