Chávez Series 4 Volume CD Set

"Whatever his musical style, harsh or mellifluous, it is the music of a personality, one of the most striking of our time."
- Aaron Copland

"Chávez the composer has always triumphed through integrity, and suffered for it as well. He has never sought to be ‘fashionable,’ but has consistently maintained the vigorous personality of his own voice."
- Leonard Bernstein

"In the long run Chávez will probably be more important than Stravinsky."
- Lou Harrison
