Notes & Reviews:

This recording introduces the work of Exequiel Mantega to American audiences. He is one of Argentina's most prolific young composers who is equally talented as a pianist, arranger and producer. The music is performed by Elena Yarritu, principal flute in the La Jolla Symphony.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
In his works for flute, Exequiel Mantega (b 1983) captures the sound of our times. He often does double the flute part in the piano, which I interpret as having a basis in jazz. Hear them as never before! The duet form is published too, by Henry Lemoine. Mantega has also arranged the nine-minute "concerto" for five instruments into a form for just two: flute and piano. The flute playing is aggressive and punchy, and a few extended techniques are rendered very well. I have enjoyed this program so thoroughly it is certainly a contender for the Best of the Year list. Don't wait until then to hear it! By the way, this is the first recording of the Mantega works and the Piazzolla arrangements.
