Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Since 1990, American clarinetist Eleanor Weingartner has served as Principal Clarinet of Mexico's National Symphony. Argentine composer Eduardo Alonso-Crespo (b 1956) gives impressions of his native continent in his Clarinet Concerto (2001). American composer Charles Fitts (b 1931) infuses his Clarinet Concerto (2004) with a brooding rhapsodic spirit. The late Mexican composer and jazz musician Eugenio Touissant (1954-2011) begins his Clarinet Concerto (2010) with sprawling pastoral lyricism and finishes it with a jaunty pandiatonic dance reminiscent of Persichetti. The scores have beauty, craft, and merit. The Camerata de las Americas manage the scores ably.
