Additional Information

Carlos Chávez: Complete Chamber Works, Vol. 3, is the third installment in Southwest Chamber Music's traversal of the complete chamber music of Mexican composer Carlos Chávez. This volume focuses on the part of his chamber music that incorporates percussion in a significant way, and presses into service the percussion ensemble Tambuco, a group that takes its name from the title of a Chávez percussion piece. Tambuco has recorded Chávez's Xochipili, Tambuco and Toccata for Percussion before for the now defunct Dorian label, but all the recordings on this Cambria disc are new. The second time around represents an improvement in all three cases, as these are much sharper and focused performances than the previous ones, in addition to being in better sound. The real surprise here, though, is the Partita for Solo Timpani, a late work that shows Chávez's mastery of percussion to its best advantage, expertly played by Ricardo Gallardo of Tambuco. The sound quality of Carlos Chávez: Complete Chamber Works, Vol. 3, is terrific, and one need not go farther than here to experience the best-ever recordings of such Chávez staples as Xochipili and Toccata for Percussion. The first two discs in this series both won Grammy awards; in this case, the third time might again prove a charm, as unusual as that would be.
