Ileana Pérez Velázquez: "Moon Tides" from "Night Songs" (2014)

Ileana Pérez Velázquez: "Moon Tides" from "Night Songs" (2014)

Nuno Antunes, clarinet; Adrian Morejon, bassoon; Molly Morkoski, piano; Jacqueline Kerrod, harp from Albany TROY1682 Cuban born composer Ileana Pérez Velázquez has had her music heard in concerts and international festivals all over the world. Awarded a commission from the Fromm Music Foundation, she has written works for numerous performers and ensembles that include a Who's Who of musicians in the field of new music. Ms. Velázquez studied in Havana as well as at Dartmouth and Indiana University. She is on the faculty at Williams College. Her music appears on the Albany, Innova, and Urlicht AV labels. There are four works on this recording, which show a creator's posture facing innovation, and the relationship between humans and the totality of creation. Velázquez's music invites us to meditate on the universal problem of existence. Her music is frequently imbued with natural phenomena, culture, and the relationship established by humans with their environment. Nunc, a new music ensemble founded in 2007, performs on three of these works -- joined on the first by violinist Miranda Cuckson. The renowned Momenta Quartet is heard on the string quartet Alma de Guije.
