Program Notes

I was born in the largest of the more than 700 islands that seem to float asleep on the very blue waters of the Antilles Sea. A true melting pot of races and cultures, the Caribbean speaks Spanish, French, English, Dutch, some Creole languages and Papiamento, which is the main idiom in Aruba and Curaçao, whose grammar combines native American elements with European words as well as some languages of African origin.

Inspired by the beauty of these lands and their soulful people, my Caribbean Berceuse pretends to be like a lullaby for a Creole child who dreams of palm trees that seem to dance to the sweet rhythms of a melody that mixes with the voices of the thousands of birds that populate this wonderful region.
