This release features a program of classical works for a unique instrumentation- oboe, clarinet, and orchestra. The first piece, Double Concerto for Oboe, Clarinet, and Orchestra by Eduardo Alonso-Crespo, sets both soloists as equals. The following works- Rosetti's Concerto No. 3 in C Major for Oboe and his Concerto in Eb Major for Clarinet, brilliantly showcase each artist individually.

With the OSN she has played in concert halls throughout Mexico as well as in important venues in Europe and the United States and has participated in many OSN recordings for Sony, among other labels.

He has previously held positions with the Guadalajara Symphony Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra, and is currently principal oboe of the Queretaro Philharmonic Orchestra.
