Congratulations to faculty member Dr. José Luis Puerta and alumnus Alfredo Vázquez on the release of their new album “Appunti” under the Seville-based Contrastes Records!
The album was recorded at the Haskell Recording Studio at the University of Arizona School of Music by Wiley Ross. The debut CD Of the Puerta-Vázquez Duo is a monographic work of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. The album includes pieces that were dedicated or made famous by Duo Presti Lagoya, Sonatina Canonica, and Fuga Elegiaca. The latter one was dedicated to them posthumously. The album also presents a unique interpretation of Appunti Op. 210. A setting for two guitars by the late David Grimes, who made this with Tedesco’s approval. The CD release concert will take place as part of the Faculty Artist Series on October 22, 7:00 PM, Holsclaw Hall.
The album is available for purchase as well as streaming on all platforms.
