Notes & Reviews:

Born in Spain and raised in Chile, Xavier Benguerel plays an important part in his native country's musical life, his compositions influenced by the work of Bartók and Stravinsky. Recorded live during the Aujourd'hui Musique Festival in Perpignan and featuring a number of musicians closely associated with Benguerel's work, this album is an excellent introduction to his fascinating music.

American Record Guide
This composer's harmonic style is free... The concepts are interesting, mainly on the chamber music side in sound. I enjoyed it and it is likely that you will, too.
