Notes & Reviews:

Guitarist Rodolfo Pérez's new album offers a miniature musical history of Mexico, from Sinaloa songs to a seminal work of 20th c. guitar music, the Sonata Mexicana by Manuel Ponce, possibly the century's first sonata for the instrument. The set also features unpublished works by Julio César Oliva and José Ángel Ramírez. Mr. Pérez is closely and personally linked to both Oliva and Ramírez, being the dedicatee of their works here, and for having given the premiere of the Fantasía Sinaloense.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Julio Cesar Oliva should be better known. His Tres Instances de Extasis and Miniatures Sinaloense are evocative works. The folklore influence is strong, but the works are more sophisticated and are worth getting to know. The same can't be said of Jose Angel Ramirez's Fantasia Sinaloense, performed with a string quintet and a coarse sound like a house band in a Mexican restaurant. Recommended for the Oliva.
