Asencio: Suite Valenciana

Vicente Asencio was born in Valencia in 1908 and he lived through a turbulent century. Asencio devoted his artistic energies to exploring the music of his beloved Valencia, including this 1971 love letter to his native region. I recorded this masterpiece in one of my favorite places: the Cathedral Barn in Traverse City, MI. It’s a calm, quiet place, a welcome respite during our own turbulent time.
