Description: Works by Mexican women composers: one making use of popular music sources - Enríquez' titles tell you what you need to know and her orchestration is suitably colorful. Rodríguez' recorder concerto's three movements are inspired by the quality and nature of three children's toys - tops, kites and marbles. Armijo's is a tribute to Mayan and other indigenous women's struggles for social justice and works three motives into a sequence of mounting affirmation while Granillo creates motives imitative of the regular and irregular nature of breathing and weaves them into a compelling narrative. Don't fear - everything is quite tonal. Orquesta Sinfónica del Instituto Politécnico Nacional;  Gabriela Díaz Alatriste.
