Notes & Reviews:

Southwest Chamber Music continues its vibrant association with the musical life of Mexico with Aroma Foliado. A musical portrait of composer Gabriela Ortiz, five important works are represented from her colorful and diverse output ranging from 1991 to 2010. Funded by Mexico's FONCA, Aroma Foliado is a unique and rare collaboration between a Mexican composer and an American ensemble.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
In a final gesture to Mexican culture, 'Atlas Pumas' is a piece written for two instrumentalists - a violinist and a percussionist - who are also avid fans of the soccer clubs, Atlas and Pumas. This piece is more playful than the others. It is valuable as an addition to the collection or as a beautifully packaged and recorded compilation of her work.
