Product Description & Reviews
Anthologies of Latin American music seem to be a dime a dozen these days and tend to showcase the same coterie of giants. The joy of this Dorian release--beyond its stunning, full-bodied sound--is its inclusion of music from lesser-known composers, namely Arturo Márquez, Javier Alvarez, Marlos Nobre, and Alejandro Caturla. Carlos Chavez, of course, is represented on this disc--which comes as no surprise--but his Chapultepec is a trivial parade-float miniature, a seven-minute effervescence that leads, thankfully, to Oscar Lorenzo Fernândez's extraordinary Batuque, a colorful orchestral romp that is already a classic. Chavez fares much better on this disc with his orchestration of Dietrich Buxtehude's Chaconne in E minor. Credit for this disc's success goes to conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson and her firm command of this wonderful music. --Paul Cook
