Program note:

Written for Montreal’s Nouvel Ensemble Moderne—an ensemble of fifteen virtuosi—in 1993, Son del Corazón is technically challenging and structurally ambitious. The title was added after the piece had been completed simply because, with all its complex rhythmicity and colorful eccentricity, I hear Son del Corazón as an elemental, danceable and celebratory work, much like every son in the Latin-American repertoire.
