Description: The process of linking folk influence with classical techniques, as exemplified by the three dead composers here (at least two of whose works you know quite well) continues to the present day with Vazquez’s ‘The Tree of Life’, a single-movement concerto of 19 minutes which uses the folk style known as the son. Iannarelli’s four-and-a-half minute piece is a lyrical and nostalgic in memoriam work for the French guitarist with whom he studied. Pablo Garibay (guitar), Orquesta Juvenil Universitaria Eduardo Mata; Gustavo Rivero Weber.
