Description: We’ve had this Mexican composer’s 1912 piano quartet before, with its influences of Ravel, Debussy and Chausson but it’s good to have more of his solo pieces which, as the titles above proclaim, are not all just in late 19th century European salon style but also employ native Mexican folk elements. 2 CDs. Claudia Corona (piano), Michael Dinnebier (violin), Sylvie Altenburder (viola), Walterr-Michael Vollhardt (cello).
