Notes and Editorial Reviews

Latin American composers share many things, but the diversity found within their music adds as much to the culture of classical music as any of the individual shared traits. This collection of new compositions dating from 1985 to 1999 highlights the variety and verve of new practitioners of the Latin American sound.
Commencing with the languorous luxury of Miguel Del Aguila's "Pacific Serenade," the album embraces the jazzier side of new music. The piece centers on the clarinet's melody line, employing blues idioms as well as traditional Brazilian folk song traditions.
On the other side of the coin, Miton Estévez's "Cantos Vivos y Cantos Rodados" is arranged for a combination of traditional ensemble and electronic equipment. Its
Read more rhythmic underpinnings create a taut, vital, and very unique take on the traditional canto.
The works of ten different composers, artists with very distinct styles, make this album a wonderful exploration into the future of music. These Latin Americans will inspire musicians for ages to come, as well as audiences today. Read less
