Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Armando Luna is an accomplished composer from Mexico City whose works are both challenging and exciting. Luna studied with Mario Lavista, a well-established Mexican composer who in turn studied with Gyorgy Ligeti. Luna’s style is not derived from Mexican folk or pop idioms, but is rooted in the contemporary classic composers. His works have been performed all over the world. Some of the works on this CD were commissioned by Mercedes Gomez for her students at the National Conservatory in Mexico City. The success of a student concert in 2000 led to a request for more such pieces from Luna, and so Gomez and her harp duo partner Janet Paulus made a commitment to make this CD and introduce the music to a wider public.
