Echoes of Argentina - New Century Chamber Orchestra - DND1035
New Century Chamber Orchestra
This release from d'Note Classics features the award winning, Grammy nominated New Century Chamber Orchestra with their third compact disc, Echoes of Argentina, combining the music of Argentine composers Alberto Williams and Alberto Ginastera. Release of Echoes of Argentina follows the widely acclaimed Written with the Heart's Blood, an all-Shostakovich CD that was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1996.
Precision, passion, and power mark the playing by the fifteen members of NCCO, who perform without a conductor. Musical decisions are made collectively in rehearsals, creating an artistic freedom much greater than in more structured settings. The NCCO's Concertmaster and Music Director is violinist Stuart Canin, formerly concertmaster of the San Francisco Symphony.
of Argentina features the world's first recordings of music by Alberto
Williams, the prolific South American composer for whom the Music Conservatory
in Buenos Aires is named. "I'm thrilled with our CD of South American
works," says Stuart Canin. "This wonderful combination of
pieces-Ginastera's Concerto for Strings is very powerful, at times even
ferocious, and Williams' three Argentine Suites for Strings are lovely
collections of dance melodies-is sure to delight all listeners."
