Alison Young’s second solo CD on the Albany records label represents the culmination of her experiences as an artist-in-residence in Argentina in 1998 and her subsequent tour of the United States with Argentinean pianist Ana Victoria Chaves playing concerts and giving classes on Latin American music in major Music Schools. The CD includes arrangements for flute and piano by Ms. Young of Piazzolla, Ginastera, and Guastavino and the recording premiere of living tango legend Horacio Salgan’s Suite Argentina.

“The interpretation and execution of works of local Argentinean character present a number of difficulties including the need to adapt to the unique rhythms and style – Alison Young has sorted them out with great artistry and ease, demonstrating a very unusual musical talent.”
– Horacio Salgan

 

“I felt as if I was back in Argentina, so vivid was the atmosphere Alison Young created through our native music. The complex subtleties of the Argentinean soul, made out of great distances, open and blue skies over never-ending plains, as well as the inner solitude of the immigrants, were recreated by her in such a moving way that I will never forget it.”
– Rául Guastavino,
Consul General of the Argentine Republic
and nephew of Carlos Guastavino
