Alondra de la Parra, one of the most compelling examples of today's young generation of conductors, and The Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas are celebrating Mexico’s 2010 Bicentennial with true musical fireworks. Featuring a wide range of vibrant orchestral music from Mexican composers written over the past 200 years, including two world premiere recordings by Eugenio Toussaint and Enrico Chapela.
“This is highly listenable, lyrical fare with shades of Copland and Gershwin, the participants' passion audible in every bar”
New York Times
26th November 2010
“[Alondra de la Parra] does a real service with this beautifully performed survey of works from the late 19th century to the present. For many, the music will be a real find, from the sunny and infectious “Huapango” of José Pablo Moncayo to the unabashedly lush Intermezzo from Ricardo Castro’s opera “Atzimba.””
