Flores de Malaga is a very original work that Yuri Chugúgev, percussionist of the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra, has recorded with great care and depth. It's not often one finds solo recordings for vibraphone and one can hear immediately that Yuri not only knows the vibraphone very well but manages to bring out all the possibilities of the instrument and at the same time not overdo the fast technical passages, which never becomes the vibraphone at the best of times. The melodies in the work are beautiful, creating a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere and at the same time expertly harmonized. The work is further complimented by the high level of recording quality.
