Programme Notes / Performance Details :The western flute and percussion families have natural counterparts in folkloric music the world over. Afro-Brazilian music is no exception. In Ligare, (`linked`), Brazilian composer Alexandre Lunsqui utilizes this natural affinity to great advantage. Ligare is a piece that literally links the two instrumental colors into a rapid flow of singular gestures. The performers are frequently connected in rhythmic unisons clearly informed by the Afro-Brazilian rhythmic vocabulary. Yet Lunsqui is not writing in imitation of such music. He transcends it with a sculptured sonic sensibility that is unmistakably modern and individual. Ligare links the contemporary with the folkloric, succeeding in a beautiful fusion representative of the celebratory aspects of musical globalization. (text by Greg Beyer)
