Danzas Latinoamericanas (Latin American Dances) was originally commissioned by Mexican cellist Carlos Prieto. It is based on some of the national dances of Argentina, Brazil and Mexico respectively.

·        Otoño en Buenos Aires, is indebted to the concert-style tangos of Astor Piazzolla, as well as the extraordinary songs of Carlos Gardel. 

·       Pan de Azúcar is named after the famous mountain in Rio de Janeiro. It echoes the sensuous music of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the exuberant vitality of the works of Heitor Villa-Lobos.

·        Atardecer Tapatío is inspired by Mexican folk-dance music and the sound of “mariachi” bands. It is a tribute to the composer’s homeland.

La Alborada de la Esperanza (The Dawn of Hope)

Duration: 4 minutes

The inspiration for this composition is the journey from darkness to light that happens when someone faces a challenging situation and is able to turn around and focus on a more positive future to come. Even though there is some struggle and melancholy in this journey, it gets transformed into hope. The result is a surprisingly luminous composition. It's a very tonal and lyrical and it is dedicated to French cellist Sébastien Hurtaud. The piano and cello version was premiered by Sébastien Hurtaud and Pamela Hurtado as part of the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I on November 11th, 2018. The version for cello and string orchestra was premiered during the World Youth Days in Panama on January 24th, 2019.

Unter dem Sternenhimmel des Rheins (Under the starry sky of the Rhein) (Bajo el cielo estrellado del Rín)

Duration: 4 minutes

Unter dem Sternenhimmel des Rheins was commissioned by German cellist Benedict Klöckner as a companion piece for Bach’s Cello Suites. The composer was particularly inspired by Mr. Klöckner’s performance of the Gigue in Bach’s Cello Suite #6, and even incorporates some quotes from that piece in his composition. In his attempt to include other elements that referenced Mr. Klöckner’s homeland in Rhineland-Palatinate, he was captivated by the evocative landscapes and medieval castles of the region.

Die Nachtblume (The Night Flower) (La Flor Nocturna)

Duration: 2 minutes and 40 seconds

The composer was inspired by the poems of Baron Joseph von Eichendorff, and in particular, with the idea of the delicate and elusive “blue flower” that represents the balance of humanity with nature and spirituality. This piece attempts to provide a musical commentary about the ephemeral beauty and significance of The Night Flower (Die Nachtblume).

Die Legende des edlen Ritters (The Legend of the Noble Knight)

(La Leyenda del Noble Caballero)

Duration: 12 minutes

 

The first movement of this piece, Unter dem Sternenhimmel des Rheins (Under the starry sky of the Rhine), was commissioned by German cellist Benedict Klöckner as a companion piece for Bach’s Cello Suites. The composer was particularly inspired by Mr. Klöckner’s performance of the Gigue in Bach’s Cello Suite #6, and even incorporates some quotes from that piece in his composition. In his attempt to include other elements that referenced Mr. Klöckner’s homeland in Rhineland-Palatinate, he was captivated by the evocative landscapes and medieval castles of the region, as well as the legends associated with them.

 

Having completed that cello solo piece, the composer wanted to further explore some of the themes presented in that piece. His encounter with the poems of Baron Joseph von Eichendorff led him to becoming enamored with the idea of the delicate and elusive “blue flower” that represents the balance of humanity with nature and spirituality. The second movement, originally an independent piece also dedicated to Mr. Klöckner, attempts to provide a musical comment about the ephemeral beauty and significance of The Night Flower (Die Nachtblume). The third movement uses the recognizable Gregorian Chant Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) and variations of it as the chant of the Lorelei, in an attempt to incorporate the legend of the unfortunate maiden-turned-enchantress associated with one of the geologic features of the banks of the Rhine. The fourth movement synthesizes the various musical and extra-musical themes introduced throughout the piece, bringing back, among other things, the melodies associated with the Bach Gigue from the Cello Suite #6.

Zephyr’s Smile (La Sonrisa de Céfiro)

Duration: 5 minutes

 

Each of the three movements in this suite is named after a toy that requires the gentle action of the wind to function. Since Zephyr is the most celebrated wind in music and poetry for its gentle, benevolent breeze, it seemed appropriate to anthropomorphize him and imagining him smiling at these images that bring back joyful moments of childhood and celebration. This composition is meant to be light-hearted, joyful and full of energy. The names of the movements are:

·        Papalotes (Kytes)

·       Rehiletes (Windmills)

·        Luces de Bengala (Sparklers)

Crepúsculos (Alpenglow)

Duration: 4 minutes

Alpenglow is a specific type of twilight, consisting of a magical pinkish or orange light that appears at the top of the Alps right before the sun goes down. The piece is sweet but melancholic, with some elements of minimalist and impressionist inspiration. The piano plays a "moto perpetuo" for most of the piece. The ethereal melodic line sometimes floats above the piano accompaniment and sometimes joins it in its perpetual motion. This composition is dedicated to Sefika Kutluer.
