Luis Humberto Salgado was an essentially self-taught Ecuadorian composer inspired equally by the folk music of his country and by currents in contemporary modernism. He defined himself as a ‘polytechnic’ composer, absorbing folk motifs and individual dances into an eclectic, vibrant and highly personal idiom. This can be heard in the Viola Sonata where the lively sanjuanito indigenous dance is evoked in music of sophisticated harmonies. The Cello Sonata is more neo-Classical, while Selene commemorates the moon landing of 1969 in striking, unconventional sonorities. Salgado’s Woodwind Quintet combines pentatonic scales and serial techniques to create a ‘polychrome fabric’.

2023 marks the 120th anniversary of the Luis Humberto Salgado’s birth.

The Kansas Virtuosi are artist faculty members and advanced graduate students of the School of Music at the University of Kansas. With individual performance credentials spanning six continents, major symphony orchestras, and leading opera and musical theatre companies, the ensemble represents the finest collection of musical artists in the state of Kansas and the American Heartland.

The Argentinean Ginastera was a slightly younger contemporary of Salgado and his string quartets are on Naxos 8570780: ‘Naxos’ sound is excellent, the timing is generous, and a translation of the poetry is provided, making this album the version of choice, regardless of price’ (Fanfare).

Enrique Soro was one of Chile’s leading composers, and his music can be heard on Naxos 8573505. MusicWeb International wrote: ‘This is an excellent discovery, which will give many hours of pleasure.’
