5.0 out of 5 stars transformative energies of timbre February 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
difficult to write on a timbral creator in mid-stream;

Parra's compositional voice is simply emerging as we speak;although today modernity still finds a cross-border paradigm; it would be odious to formulate theories along "national" after-modernity era;yet capital does control the "centers" of where funds animate and instigate creativity as always;

likewise the "string trio" (2006) without piano this time, this is a genre that has well-been defined within the dodecaphonic forcefields; gestures here are quite different, Parra understands where problems have existed in the literature; even Parra's teacher
