Notes & Reviews:

Born in Cienfuegos, Cuba, Ileana Perez Velazquez earned her degrees from the Higher Institute of Arts, Havana in 1987. When she moved to the United States in 1993, she was already receiving acclaim as one of the bright lights of Cuban composition, having several awards. She would later continue her studies at Dartmouth College and Indiana university, where her teachers included Johmn Appleton, Charles Dodge, Claude Baker and Eugene O'brien. She writes music that, while challenging for both performers and listeners alike, is deeply expressive and accessible; her music may be uncompromising in its demands, but it also remains intensely dramatic and poignantly evocative.
