Music by Cuban-born composer and conductor Odaline de la Martinez, who founded her new music group Lontano 35 years ago, opening performance channels for composers across the board. Her own work has often been put to one side in the service of music by other composers whom she championed over the years. Tonight thre are two pieces from her own pen, revealing her taste for instrumental colour, lyrical line and passionate utterance.
Litanies (1981) for flute, string trio and harp recalls Martinez's early years in Cuba.
Lontano, with soprano Olivia Robinson, directed by Odaline de la Martinez.
Canciones (1983) based on four early poems of Federico Garcia Lorca.
