Rumor de Paramo (2006) Audio CD



Ana Cervantes commissioned 18 composers to write short piano pieces to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Pedro Paramo, an important proto-magical-realist novel by Mexican author Juan Rulfo. My Murmuring in Comala was written for this project. 12 of the pieces, including mine, were recorded on compact disc and presented at the 34th Festival Internacional Cervantino in Guanajuato, Mexico on October 17, 2006. Anna Picard of The U.K.’s Independent described the disc as follows: “In Rumor de Paramo, Mexican composers Georgina Derbez, Horacio Uribe, Eugenio Toussaint, Mario Lavista, Vicente Barrientos and Federico Ibarra are programmed alongside composers from Spain (Carlos Cruz de Castro, Tomas Marco), the USA (Charles B. Griffin, Jack Fortner, Anne LeBaron) and the UK (Stephen McNeff) in works inspired by the novels of Juan Rulfo. Silence is important as music, while ghosts of the past can be found in the shreds of Old World counterpoint and courtly dances that crowd around the folk motifs. A remarkable collection magnetically played.”
