[Coll]: Pine, Rachel Barton (Violin) / Capricho Latino
Label: Cedille Records, 2011

This collection of solo violin music with a Spanish or Latin American flavor will delight. Rachel Barton Pine opens with her arrangement of Albéniz’ (1860-1909) best-known piece, Asturias. Cordero’s (1917-2008) Rapsodia Panameña uses 12-tone techniques married to Latin American themes. Balada Española became world famous as the theme of the movie Forbidden Games. Espejo’s Prélude Iberique is a dance from Málaga incorporating the whole tone scale. Quiroa (1892-1961) was a violin virtuoso, until maimed in a 1932 NYC traffic accident. White (1836-1918) was a child prodigy violinist. Francisco Tárrega’s Recuerdos de la Alhambra is as popular as Asturias among classical guitarists. Joaquín Rodrigo (1901-1999), best known for his Concierto de Aranjuez (for guitar) was blind and composed in Braille. José Serebrier (b. 1938) is an award-winning Uruguayan composer/conductor. Pine has created a medley of Piazzolla tunes. The allegory tale of Ferdinand the Bull created much distress among the fascist’s trying to install General Franco to power in Spain. Alan Ridout’s (1934-1996) 1971 score follows the plot’s action, delicacy, subtlety and humor.

1. (6:07) Albéniz: Asturias. Everyone knows and loves this piece.
2. (9:19) Cordero: Rapsodia Panameña. Atonal declamation.
3. (2:15) Traditional: Balada Española. Catchy, Bach-style theme
4. (4:49) Espejo: Prélude Iberique. Sultry and fiery. Somewhat atonal
5. (3:14) Quiroga: Emigrantes Celtas. A Celtic warrior appears and dances.
6. (2:15) Quiroga: Terra!! Á Nosa!! Scottish highlanders meet gypsies.
7. (6:39) Ysaÿe: Sonata No. 6. A disguised Habanera rhythm.
8. (5:53) González: Epitalamio Tanguero. A wedding gift to Pine.
9. (5:16) White: Etude No. 6. A country song, technically demanding.
10. (3:52) Tárrega: Recuerdos de la Alhambra. Lovely, evocative melody with tremolo effects.
11. (6:23) Rodrigo: Capriccio. Virtuoso song, piquant.
12. (8:23) Serebrier: Aires de Tango. Tango spirit, with nostalgia, sadness, bitterness.
13. (4:27) Piazzolla: Tango Etude No 3 con Libertango. The “Freedom Tango” certainly seduces gaily and intensely.
14. (10:46) Ridout: Ferdinand the Bull (narrated).
