Notes and Editorial Reviews

Emotional extremes, captivating rhythms, breathtaking virtuosity: the vibrancy of Joaquín Clerch's Caribbean home shines from all the measures of his music. The grand old men of the famous Buena Vista Social Club respectfully address this Cuban guitarist as "Maestro," and he regards Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms as his compositional models - but in no way denies his origins. Rarely have cultural oppositions formed such a convincing synthesis as in "Concierto de Cáceres" and "Concierto de Otoño." These are compositions representing two ravishingly beautiful new contributions to the virtuosic repertoire for flute and guitar with orchestra. - MD&G (Translated from German text.)
