Review: ALLMUSIC REVIEW by James Manheim

The Havana Moon title and the presence of Cuban reedman Paquito D'Rivera at the beginning of the program might give the impression that this is a collection of Cuban crossover music; in fact, the program is pan-Latin; composer Miguel del Águila is Uruguayan, Heitor Villa-Lobos is Brazilian, and JP Jofre is an Argentinian bandoneón player and composer. The music is for a small chamber ensemble headed by German pianist Evelyn Ulex; hence the connection to the piano-oriented Steinway label (and the Transatlantic moniker, for clarinetist Mariam Adam is American)...

Havana Moon from Steinway & Sons, for example, mixes a couple of short, evocative, authentically Latinate piano works by Heitor Villa-Lobos (Skyline of New Yorkand Valsa da Dor) with Latin-influenced pieces by three contemporary composers. The three are Paquito D’Rivera (born 1948), who contributes The Cape Cod Files(four movements), Habanera, Contradanza and Vals Venezolano; Miguel del Águila (born 1957), whose Tango Trio, Nocturne and Silence are heard here; and bandoneón player J.P. Jofre (born 1983), whose works on this CD are Sweet Dreams and Primavera.

JP Jofre:
"It's a great honor to be part of this unique album that features some of my favorite composers. Now's days is very hard to find albums with diverse styles of contemporary-tonal music, but in this case, the Transatlantic Ensemble did a wonderful work in the selection of the works and the performance is excellent."

Miguel del Aguila:
I just finished listening to my Silence from your new Havana Moon CD; and both my friend and I were in tears by the beginning of the coda. Your interpretation is so beautifully moving, lyrical, refined, deep and most of all the feelings and expression of the music sound so sincere. …

Brilliant Return of Clarinetist Mariam Adam (By David Beech) March, 10, 2014

Monterey native Mariam Adam made a welcome return to the area on Friday evening, March 7, 2014 to play at All Saints’ Church, Carmel in a fund-raiser for Youth Music Monterey, of which she is an alumna.

TransAtlantic Ensemble Redefines Classical Music at (le) Poisson Rouge
Feast of Music (By David Artavia) April 14, 2013

Transatlantic Ensemble’s Friday night performance at (le) Poisson Rouge might have created a new dictionary entry for "classical music." It doesn’t need to be played for white-haired men dragged to the theater by their wives; it can be captivating, artistic, and if done right, reflect the inner emotions of our life. >read more<
