Great Music!
This album of completely new contemporary music is very refreshing. The piece, Gigante Blanca by Ignacio Rodriguez Guerra is my favourite; the melody is very interesting and I enjoy the seamless performance by Mr Alvarez and Ms Tan. All in all, it is a very good compilation of music!


la noche
It is one of the most interesing and creative flute albums i have ever heard. Mr Roberto has showcased to us his extraordinaty control of the tone, fingering and articulation. And as fantastic as it is, i had the opportunity to go and experience his live perfomances of these pieces.


Review of la noche
A great collection of music that explores a lot on tone and harmony in music, thus bringing out a sensitive kind of sound. Good job to Mr Roberto and Ms Katrina who brought out the level of sensitivity and refreshingly present this collection of 20th century music. each time I listen, the pieces reveal more of their beauty.
