Notes & Reviews:

Sueños Místicos (Mystical Dreams) presents virtuoso violinist Airi Yoshioka performing works by Latin American composers whose contemporary music reflects their personal cultural experiences. By employing her interpretive intelligence and technical mastery, Yoshioka renders beautiful and highly introspective music that inhabits the imaginative and cultural spaces inspired by her childhood readings of Latin American novels. Of particular note are her flawless intonation and control of even the slightest timbral fluctuations, all of which are exquisitely captured by fourtime Grammy award winning producer and engineer Judith Sherman. Recorded in the renowned auditorium at The American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York City, the album sounds as though the listener is seated on stage with the performers during a live concert. Each work on Sueños Místicos reveals a dazzling tapestry of Latin melodic and harmonic elements that amplify the intense connection Yoshioka and her brilliant accompanist, John Novacek, achieve with the music. Extending the Latin American influence into an unexpected realm of sonic dialogue, the album also features a work for violin and interactive computer. Composers featured on the album are Roberto Sierra, Pablo Ortiz, Gabriela Lena Frank, Errollyn Wallen, Tania León, and Paul Desenne.
