Notes and Editorial Reviews

The pieces on this album explore three different approaches to the voice as a musical instrument. Las Hojas Secas (The Dry Leaves) is a song cycle for soprano and piano. Poetry by Jose Juan Tablada was the inspiration for the piece. Dos Danzas para un principio (Two Dances for a Beginning) is a work for choir, brass, and percussion, and is based on the composer’s own texts. Reflejo (Reflection) is composed for women’s sextet, and is also based on text by the composer. The pieces on this album explore three different approaches to the voice as a musical instrument.
