Songs of Longing is the result of composer Felipe Téllez’s intense work with TakeFive Ensemble. In it, you can hear hints of Colombian Folk fused with Romantic era traditions of the West. Felipe’s work possesses a wide range— moody and tender at times, and intensely rhythmic and playful when least expected.

The music is brought to life by TakeFive Ensemble — comprised of violinists Lynn Kuo and Csaba Koczó, Carolyn Blackwell on viola, Emmanuelle Beaulieu  Bergeron on cello, and Shoshana Telner on piano.
