Various: Lat Am Orch Works

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
On this disc we present a veritable feast of early to mid-twentieth century orchestral music by composers from Argentina, Peru, Brazil, and Columbia. The works are all premier recordings, and brimming with Afro-Cuban and Creole folk-inspired sounds, as well as dance influences from the Argentine tango. Piazzolla's little-known Milongon Festivo shows an interesting mix of styles, in which the Argentine tango is tempered by the influences of Stravinsky, Bartok, and jazz. Commissioned by Piazzolla's son, the version on this recording is Castagna's own arrangement for full symphony orchestra, notably without the use of bandoneon - a musical instrument reminiscent of the accordion, and traditionally an integral part of Argentine tango orchestras. Also on this disc, folk music meets impressionism in two works by the Argentine composer Carrillo, while Congada by Mignone is inspired by Afro-Brazilian dance music, and Valcarcel demonstrates his strong Peruvian style in Concierto Indio, a work for solo violin and orchestra. The Wurttembergische Philharmonie Reutlingen is one of the most prominent orchestras in Germany, sought after both at home and internationally. It is conducted by Gabriel Castagna, who has worked with numerous orchestras in the US, Europe, and Japan. Latin American music is a speciality of his, and he has received popular and critical acclaim for his many performances and recordings of works by Argentine composers, Piazzolla in particular.
