Ruiz, Federico: Venezuelan Treasures for the Piano, Volume 2

Ref: C462 ISMN: 9790570814626 Categories: , , , By:


Federico Ruiz finds constant inspiration in the rich popular and folkloric music of his country, the very thing that first attracted Clara Rodriguez to his compositions. They first met in 1993 and she became acquainted not only with his music, but, through it, discovered the precision and the soft expressiveness of each of the numerous rhythms of Latin America and the Caribbean. His music is a sophisticated synthesis of Latin American styles that, amongst many other traits, expresses the subtle interface between ‘classical’ and ‘popular’ music of the continent.
