Notes & Reviews:

Martha Councell-Vargas enjoys an exhilarating career as a solo and chamber flutist, teaching artist, and scholar. In her newest release, Fantasía, you are invited to explore and celebrate the diverse flute traditions of the American continent. Peruvian indigenous music's harmonic language inspired Fantasía Andina, while Upingos represents the Mexican folk tradition. U.S. flutist and composer Jennifer Higdon gives the performer a strong, energized voice in Song. Two Venezuelan dance traditions are represented - joropo in Solo de Pajarillo, and the Venezuelan waltz in La Negra. Also from Venezuela, composer Adina Izarra explores cutting-edge sound effects using extended techniques in El Amolador, the (axe) grinder. Camargo Guarnieri's Three Improvisations is musical modernism but with an undeniably Brazilian melodic soul. Uruguayan composer José Serebrier's at dusk, in shadows... invites us into a world of light, contrast, and mystery, the perfect canvas for the flute's infinite palette of colors and expressive power.
