The legacy of some of the most important Mexican composers by performing  their masterpieces for  the first time and  with my own arrangements in an orchestra marimba, in the hope that you all can enjoy its sonorous richness. The pieces included are: 

A la orilla de un Palmar, Dios Nunca Muere, El Azahar, Huapángo, La Llorona, Valentina,
Quién Sabe, Scherzino, Sobre las Olas, Sones de Mariachi, Mazurca No. 1, Vals Poético.

Con Amor a Méxíco
Percussive Notes
The journal of the Percussive Arts Society • Vol. 47, No. 2 • April 2009

Oscar Salazar shares his interpretation of songs by important Mexican composers in his solo marimba CD, Con Amor a Méxíco (With Love of Mexico). The majority of the selections are set in a quasi theme-and-variations format, keeping true to the original strophic (repeated music with different text) form of the songs.

The CD flows smoothly, alternating between selections of great energy (“Huapango”) and those of a more reflective nature (“Llorona”). Salazar achieves a beautiful tone and epitomizes the sonorous sound of the
marimba in “Scherzíno” and “Mazurca No. 1.” His technical ferocity is demonstrated in his fast, permeated stickings in “Sones de Mariachi (Sound of Mariachi Musician),” and through the clarity of independent musical lines and contrary motion in “Dios nunca muere (God never dies).”

Some of the selections will be very familiar to listeners, such as “Sobre las olas (On the Waves)” and “A la orílla de un palmar (At the Edge of the Palm Grove).”

Con Amor a Méxíco encompasses 12 songs. It is my hope that Salazar will publish his arrangements so we will be able to perform these selections and share his love of traditional Mexican music.
