Antonio Ruiz-Pipó was a versatile musician whose compositions display both Spanish and French influences as well as reflecting his own life story. This program reveals his inclination towards South American music, and in the duet Homenaje a Villa-Lobos and the quartet América, he looks towards the habanera and samba (as well as a little boogie-woogie). Ancient sounds from a faraway land echo in the Homenaje a Antonio de Cabezón, while Cuatropara Cuatro and A Sevilla are pure Andalusian in their colors, rhythms, and narrative.
