The expressive possibilities of a viola soliloquy - such as in Cerrillo's Es preciso...------contrast with the vast number of timbral, textural, and organizational arranging the twelve-tone series exhibited in the Cuatro piezas by Manuel Enriquez. Other works range from the abstract lyricism and simplicity of the neoclassical Madrigal by Carlos Chavez, the innocent Indianism of Hoja de album 2 by Luis Sandi, and the romance of imaginary birds in Tres danzas seculares by Lavista. Nevertheless, first deceiving, as the saying goes, for the most recent work ------ Cuaderno de viaje (1989-2004) --has anarchaci and quasi-medieval atmosphere within its idiomatic exploration of harmonics, while the oldest composition in this CD--- the Capricho en4os., 8os., y 16vos., de tono (1928)-is the most progressive, experimental and innovative of all.

It is precisely Carrillo's Capricho that provided the impetus for recording this collection of modern Mexican works for the viola.  Its preparation had to begin with a reconstruction and transcription into conventional notation of its original numerical notation concept.  Surrounding this seminal composition by Carrillo, each one of the works in this collection contains a unique and individual musical identity.  Together they reveal the magnitude of the modern Mexican musical landscape.  It is our hope that this journey will be interest in and memorable for the curious and eager listener
