Puerto Rico-born composer Roberto Sierra (b. 1953) is internationally renowned for his integration of Caribbean music with the Western idioms he acquired during studies in Europe. The character of Kandinsky ranges from the intimate to the bold and virtuosic, responding with fresh and surprising impressions to a selection of Wassily Kandinsky’s unique paintings. The Clarinet Sonata explores the intricate swing of Caribbean mixed meters and instrumental colours in a work of stunning expressiveness and virtuosity. Sierra’s longest chamber work to date, Treinta y tres formas de mirar un mismo objeto (Thirty-three Ways to Look at the Same Object), was composed for Cheryl Seltzer and Joel Sachs, and is also one of the most substantial works in the repertoire for two performers at a single piano.
