Album Notes
Martin Soderberg’s exploration and “uncovering” of the classical repertoire from Latin America continues on Vol. 3 with rare and exotic piano compositions by composers from Cuba, Ecuador, Peru, Paraguay and Uruguay. Manuel Saumell (1818-70) was a Cuban composer known for his invention and development of genuinely creolized forms of music. He is credited for being the first to cultivate Cuban musical nationalism. Sixto Duran (1875-1947) was an Ecuadorian pianist, composer, and lawyer. Besides folk music, he liked to compose classical music and chamber music. He also wrote articles for several magazines and newspapers. Gerardo Guevara (b. 1930) is one of the key composers in Ecuador. His work combines native music with contemporary techniques. Mainly nationalist, he nonetheless explored contemporary techniques. Roberto Carpio Valdes (1900-86) was a pianist and composer from Peru. His short output is almost exclusively dedicated to the piano and the lied. His style features a blend of Andean Peruvian music with French impressionist composer Debussy as well as other European styles. The third movement of his Suite (Allegro animato), has a particular “Indian” influence, with a very lively melody and left hand accompaniment based on fifths throughout, except for the more quiet, “meditative” middle section. Tracks 12 & 13 feature Martin Soderberg’s piano arrangements of Danza Paraguaya No.1 and Mazurka (Sarita) by Agustin Barrios (1885-1944), a composer from Paraguay, who wrote almost exclusively for the guitar. Barrios is considered one of the greatest composers for the guitar. Alfonso Broqua (1876-1946), was an Uruguayan composer. In 1894 he went to Paris and entered the Schola Cantorum, where he studied composition under Vincent d'Indy for six years. Broqua set out to create a new musical aesthetic based on the use of vocal themes and dance forms and rhythms from Uruguayan folk music. Philippe Courras (1863-1920) was a Uruguayan composer of French origin. The Habanera is one of his most famous pieces and it features the typical Cuban Rhythm in a grandiose romantic style (big octave section at the end). It is a beautiful haunting piece.
