Notes and Editorial Reviews

In my new album, the sixth of my collection for Nimbus Records, you can hear throught he music of a continent the joy of the dances alongside the historical suffering product of the social struggles that have endured, today and for the last 500 years, the concentration of different cultures on the American soil. These works are born from an ancestral knowledge and a concern to understand the roots and amalgam of the many musical and cultural variety present in our societies. Composers and performers alike rejoice in the richness and beauty of the magnificent blend of three ubiquitous cultures, and Amerindian, the European and the Black African, which form our ''terrestrial rainbow'' as Eduardo Galeano calls it. This multiculturalism makes Read more us Americans, without frontiers. All the composers here present have explored in depth the music of their countries creating their own musical languages. Each piece has a story to tell; Also local poetry has had great influence as names like those of Atahualpa Yupanqui and Alberto Arvelo Torrealba, among many others, have been invoked in different ways in them. For several years now, I have tended to create my recital programmes, playing solo piano works and others with special guests that enhance the music with their impressive knowledge of genres and styles. In this case Carlos ''Nene'' Quintero, Carlos Rodriguez, Manuel Rangel and Edwin Arellano accompany me in six of the tracks. I hope you will like this collection that encompasses so many feelings; Fromt he hoyous rhythms to remembrance, nostalgia and the tragedy of suicide passing also through childhood songs and stories plus the subtlety and smooth swing of the music of a continent.''
