Great performances of works by this imaginative, colorful composer.

Roberto Sierra notes in his comments that "The unifying factor of all the works on this CD is that in one way or another they relate to variation form, as is the case of Antonio Soler's Fandango. This work from the Spanish Baroque has always fascinated me for its strange and whimsical twists and turns. My Fandangos is an orchestral fantasy that takes as a point of departure Soler's piece." Sierra's Reflections on a Souvenir and Variations on a Souvenir both take as their inspiration Gottschalk's Souvenir de Porto Rico. Ian Hobson serves as both pianist and conductor for these inspired performances.

Review:
"[Roberto Sierra's] a composer of enormous energy, and his music's drama, athleticism, and brilliant color are its most notable qualities. ...Ian Hobson is stunning in all of these works, wearing multiple hats of soloist and conductor. He brings an old-school virtuosic temperament to his interpretation, yet seems completely attuned to the composer's intent and aesthetic." (Fanfare)
