For the follow-up to her first volume, Argentinian-born but Canadian resident pianist Alma Petchersky has chosen the big virtuoso work Rudepoema, and the smaller, bite-sized Cirandas.  There's majesty in the first piece (and more or less all the right notes - it can be hard to tell), while each of the Cirandas is nicely characterized.
