Album Notes
Recuerdos is a labor of love dedicated to my grandfather, Cenobio Hernández, who was the composer of the music on the album. This music from another time is a collection of Mexican semi-classical piano pieces with a soundtrack quality and hint of ragtime stride. The songs include waltzes, polkas, a danza, and a tango.

Born in 1863 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, Cenobio Hernández was a classical musician and arranger, who played cello, bass, and bajo sexto. He was "discovered" near the end of the Mexican Revolution by a symphony musician who insisted that he move his family to San Antonio, Texas, where there was more work for musicians of his caliber. During the 20's, he played for the silent movies in the Palace Theatre Symphony Orchestra as well as in the Majestic and Empire Theatres in San Antonio. He wrote the majority of his music during the 40's, and he died at the age of 87, in 1950.

Recuerdos is a reminiscence of his years in the silent movies. The pieces are a reflection of the drama that unfolded in his life, and they tell stories all their own.

So, close your eyes, and listen to the heart and soul of this humble musician, composer, and teacher, and watch the movies that unfold in the theatre of your imagination.

-Ricky Hernández (Artist/Producer)
