Our CD of the Week as featured in Fine Music Breakfast is Margaret Brandman’s La Vida Apasionada, a suite of eight Latin-American dance-style pieces originally commissioned by violinist Vov Dylan for his string and percussion ensemble.

Margaret has also arranged the suite for various instrumental duets including the violin and piano versions on this album performed by Vov together with Margaret on piano.
The sequence of the works in the suite weaves a narrative of love, from a passionate encounter, to moments of bliss, while in the central movement Tristeza del Corazón, the music expresses the inevitable moments of heartbreak in a relationship, after which love returns and triumphs.
