*** FOLLOW UP TO SECOND CD (Music for Ballet Class II - Etudes) ***
This third recording is a follow-up to her very popular first and second CD's. Once again Aly's compositions reach into the soul of the dancer through her sometimes subdued and sometimes sweeping melodies. As always, the accompanist’s main objective is to inspire the dancer’s performance, but Aly’s beautiful melodies prove that for her it is quite the other way around…
This is the first CD Aly includes some cover songs adapted for the ballet class exercise, and it will not be the last. Would you like to hear a certain song in a certain rhythm? Aly wants to hear from you! www.AlyTejas.com and post your comment or request in her Guestbook, or you can follow her on Facebook.
In this CD 30 extended tracks (including four bonus tracks) filled with lush melodies and varying tempos and rhythms make up a complete class of over 44 minutes. Aly’s style reflects the classical ballet teachings of her native Cuba – the relationship between the dancer and the accompanist is first and foremost – listen to her melodies as they build and lead up to a graceful and subtle pause before the next section emerges, and let yourself be carried away by the music. This is not just a ballet class CD – no dancing is required to enjoy this music.
Aly Tejas, or “Aliucha” to her friends and family, is much more than a gifted classical ballet pianist. She swings out in Cuban dance music, the kind that makes you sway, sweat, and feel alive! She has performed with well-known artists such as Latin Grammy® nominated singer-songwriter Victor Romero and Cuban songstress Mirtha Medina, as well as with numerous other Latin and variety bands. As a classical piano accompanist, Aly has worked in several ballet and dance schools in her native Cuba and in the South Florida area and is now full time with the renowned Boston Ballet.
Although Aly’s first three recorded musical productions are for ballet class, expect to see other types of recordings in the future. Whether you are a classical, jazz, or “timba” fan, you are guaranteed to get lost in this talented pianist’s sweeping melodies and emotional performance.
