A new piece by MSU DMA student Ivette Herryman Rodríguez has been published by Walton Music, a division of GIA Publications.The piece can be seen featured on their “2015 New Releases” page. The title, “Sigue” (Continue) and is inspired on a poem by Nicolas Guillen, Cuba’s national poet. Musically the piece recreates the Cuban genre known as Son, which is a hallmark of Cuban Music.

The MSU Women’s Chamber Ensemble will close their concert on Saturday with a performance of the piece. Congratulations, Ivette!

Leo Brouwer

Leo Brouwer is a Cuban composer, conductor, and guitarist. His music was featured during Composer Idol (sadly, he didn’t make it to the last round).

Ivette submitted this video of his piece for guitar, Un dia de Noviembre to give a sense of what his music is like. I think it’s especially appropriate for the season as the snow begins to fall this week.
