Notes & Reviews:
Taracea (Spanish) is defined as 'an inlaid decorative work made from small pieces of different colored woods and other fine materials, arranged to form intricate geometric shapes' (liner notes). This is exactly what is represented in this colorful and eclectic mix of music spanning the ancient and modern eras, most of which has been specially arranged for recorders by the artists on the recording. Recorder quintet Seldom Sede formed in 2009. The ensemble has appeared all over Europe in concert series and festivals. The musicians perform on a collection of more than 50 recorders.
American Record Guide, September/October 2015
The program notes are written by one of the members, Maria Martinez Ayerza. They introduce the ensemble very well and communicate the nature of the pieces and the group's arrangements. Two pages list the instruments we hear and identify which person plays them. This release is a model in every respect, then, and the only thing left is for you to buy a copy for yourself and hear it firsthand.
