Kirk Trevor conducts two new works by Florencio Asenjo.

Argentinian-American composer Florencio Asenjo couples two works inspired by books whose authors were attracted to the contrast between the finite and the infinite with a concerto for orchestra that gives each type of instrument a solo part. Asenjo, who writes in a style he has labeled maximalism, which involves the creation of entirely new themes connected aesthetically to the preceding one -- a development of substance rather than of form. This is fifth recording of his music to appear on Albany Records. His music has been championed by Kirk Trevor, who conducts these performances by the Bulgarian Philharmonic.

Review:
"Borges and Asenjo form an absolutely natural combination; the infinite libraries, containing every conceivable permutation of language...of the one could serve as a metaphor for the endless, non-repetitive inventive 'maximalism' of the other...Dunsany's sprawling fantasies, with their endless diversions, also provide appropriately diverse inspriation for Asenjo's evolving development of musical ideas and moods, rather than thematic metamorphosis per se." (Records International)
