Composer Ingrid Arauco comments that "The word vistas conjures up a panorama of vivid images; however, it also signifies a broad perspective encompassing many experiences over time. The works on this album, written over a 13-year period, comprise a series of strong musical images embracing a variety of styles. Yet together they project a unified artistic vision." A faculty member at Haverford College, Ms. Arauco's music has been performed by many distinguished musical organizations including the Atlanta Symphony, the Colorado Quartet and the Network for New Music. She is the recipient of numerous honors including awards from the American Guild of Organists. This program, performed by some of the best-known instrumentalists in the U.S., shows Arauco's music to be engaging and compelling.

  • "Arauco has a most charming way of piecing her music together to create enjoyable, to-nal soundscapes This is a remarkably diverse series of works by one composer, ranging from lightweight to very serious, and showing how well one can work with these differ-ent idioms and still maintain one's artistic identity."
