Argentinian pianist, teacher and composer, Graciela Jiménez, continues to be inspired by the landscape and folk melodies of her native country. They infuse her piano music with evocative imagery whether in the colourful fantasia of En los ojos de las llamas, the aphoristic, dreamlike Tres piezas para piano or in the virtuosic dance rhythms of En la Quebrada de Humahuaca which evoke the music of her great predecessor, Alberto Ginastera. Her poetic, impressionist and jazz-inflected La luz de enero is an adaptation for cello and piano of her song cycle, music of exceptional and luminous beauty.
