Notes & Reviews:

Colombia's thriving cultural heritage derives from Spanish, African and Amerindian elements. The rich blend of color and rhythmic vitality found in the synthesis of dance forms and styles, notably the sharply accented Andean bambuco ('pursuit dance'), the flowing, graceful pasillo and the traditional, rhythmic guabina, recurs throughout this program. Poignant expressiveness and intricate virtuosity are features of Montan~a's two Suites. Saboya's Suite Ernestina includes characteristically South American melodies and rhythms, while Caribbean rhythmic patterns are recreated in Gonzalez's Preludio. Jose Antonio Escobar's Guitar Music of Chile (Naxos 8.570341) was described as "absolutely stunning" by MusicWeb International.
