Picture of CD of music for piano performed by Elena Riu Artist: Elena Riu and Wilmer Sifontes
SOMMCD 237 - Elena Riu - Piano, Wilmer Sifontes - Latin percussion.

In addition to Mompou and Estevez who come from an earlier era, the composers represented here originate in Venezuela, Britain, Cuba, Mexico, Canada, and Belize and were commissioned by Riu during 2003/04 to write a piece inspired by Salsa.

The overall result is an intriguing and exciting fusion of styles and genres.

The CD recorded late in the summer of 2004 contains 22 pieces and includes London Premieres by Javier Alvarez, Douglas Finch, Deirdre Gribbin, Elena Riu and several others.

The scores of the sixteen commissions on the CD are available in a book entitled Salsa nueva and published by Boosey and Hawkes in collaboration with SOMM.
