Paquito D’Rivera is a river that runs and winds practically through the entire American continent; a river that flows along gathering and pulling every material of sound that it finds in its way. Sailing along we discover the sublime and personal style of this unique artist and in doing so his heritage and influences are revealed to us. Paquito’s constant references to leading figures like Diz, Chucho, Toots, Piazzolla, Lecuona, Lauro or Goodman have likewise inspired us to make this tribute to his art.

The seventh volume in this acclaimed series is devoted to two works of Albéniz’s early maturity. The 12 Piezas características is a cycle of exquisite miniatures encompassing a wide variety of styles, including the assimilation of Andalusian folk music into his own personal idiom, reminiscences of earlier greats such as Scarlatti and Chopin, and elements of nineteenth-century salon music. The work led Felipe Pedrell, the father of Spanish musical nationalism, to call Albéniz not only a superbly equipped pianist but a great composer as well. The romantic and virtuosic Piano Sonata No. 3 opens with a richly contrapuntal Allegretto, followed by a slow movement of the utmost delicacy in the manner of a romanza and concludes with a technically complex Allegro assai.
