Description: Back to more readily approachable with Lavalle’s suite of Xalapan dances and Arias’ mid-19th-century Romanticism while Velásquez shits between tempi and dynamics in a post-Romantic style whose slow parts recall Eastern European minimalism. Standing by itself is Waller’s piece in which barely recognizable rhythms and colors peep out as if distorted by a fun-house mirror. Rather fun, really! Trio Scherzando. Private label. No catalogue number.
