Legends and Light v.2 track 2 Tributum
“The composer Nan Avant, originally from the Pacific Northwest,
carries within her the great musical legacy of Peru. Tributum,
written for both Irish bagpipes and Scottish bagpipes (tuned at 440 Hz),
is a work of precious detail, in which the composer conveys to us the finesse
and tenderness of the skin of these heritage instruments.” Carme Miro ~ Sonograma Magazine
