Manuel Ponce was a contemporary of Reverón and a champion of the nationalist movement in Mexico. His work is beautifully represented in his composition Trio Romántico. In turn, Eduardo Alonso Crespo creates an alluring homage to the tango, Argentina's national treasure, in Trio Op. 30. The program also features the world premiere of La Hamaca (The Hammock), a work inspired by the 1933 painting by Armando Reverón and composed by Venezuelan-born Ricardo Lorenz.
