Album Notes
ABBRACCIARE: to hold (someone) closely in one's arms, especially as a sign of affection.
ALLEGRIA: 70's jazz fusion combines with classical folk influences in this dynamic samba which features two extended jazz flute solos.
FORZA: Force is any influence that causes an object to undergo a certain change. It also connotes images of strength, power, energy and intensity. Within this single movement work, the three flutist perform a variety of compositional techniques that carry an innate force and impetus to its inevitable exciting conclusion.
FERVENTE: Combines elements of jazz fusion, American folk and Flamenco. Composed to capture the anxiety parents face when taking their children on an airplane for the first time.
BARCELLONA: A world music composition with the influence of flamenco, Spanish folk music emitting an endearing friendship between special friends.
LA PIRATA: Pirates longing for the high seas is the central theme of this trio of exciting pirate songs.
FARANDULA: Literally, "to party with the intention of dancing."
SPAIN: A four movement work inspired by the folk music originating from south of the Iberian peninsula.
TANGO DE LOS FLAMENCOS: Spanish ornamentation, florid melodic lines and a unique blend of pop culture contribute to the musical style of this work.
SINCERITA: The passionate influence of the Flamenco School combines with American classical jazz to offer a rhythmically complex and dynamic composition.
CALIENTE: A highly energetic dance samba combining Latin rhythms and Spanish harmonies.

Christopher's music is performed and recorded by students and virtuosi alike and has been the subi·ect of doctoral dissertations. His sheet music catalog of world music for flute alone has more than 350 original compositions and arrangements made available as digital downloads.
