In this album Mauricio Arias-Esguerra offers a kaleidoscopic view of recent Colombian piano music, highlighting it's striking stylistic variety. Germán Darío Pérez sees a traditional dance through a jazzy lens, and Blas Emilio Atehortúa takes a post-serial approach in his Preludio, Variaciones y Presto Alucinante. The influence of progressive rock music can be heard in Gustavo Parra's Pavec Lingus, as can Jaime León's love of US American music in his Made in U.S.A. preludes; and there is techno and angst in Ian Frederick's Suite Catrina. Arias-Esguerra's own contributions are highly contrasted, with lyricism in his Arizona Mirage and rhythmic drive in his Toccata Bachkovsky.
