Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is the second volume in Centaur's complete edition of flute works by contemporary composer Salvador Brotons. This is a great program of modern flute works, superbly played by Roberto Alvarez. Dr. Salvador Brotons was born into in a Barcelona family of musicians. He studied flute with his father and continued his studies at the Barcelona Conservatory of Music, obtaining superior titles in flute, composition and orchestra conducting. In 1985 he was awarded a Fulbright scholarship and moved to the United States where he received his Doctorate in Music from Florida State University. He has been a student of X. Monsalvatge and R. Johnson in composition, and A. Ros-Marbà and P. Spurgeon in conducting. Diversity of styles is a hallmark Read more of Roberto Alvarez’s concerts and recitals. As a matter of fact he feels just as comfortable performing classical, baroque or avant-garde music as well as celtic, jazz or rock. He has received various international prizes, such as the Diploma of Honor in the Torneo Internazionale di Musica, Concurso Internacional de Música “Paper de Musica” de Capellades, the Ángel Muñíz Toca Award and the Ciutat de Manresa Prize.
