Houston Symphony / Andres Orozco-Estrada

After having demonstrated their musical excellence with three well-received recordings on PENTATONE with orchestral works of Dvorak, Houston Symphony and Andres Orozco-Estrada now present an album that comes closer to their cultural roots. Dance rhythms, jazzy harmonies, bright colours, city sounds; everything one associates with The Americas can be heard on this recording. With George Gershwin's 1928 piece An American in Paris, Silvestre Revueltas's Sensemaya (1938), Leonard Bernstein's Symphonic Dances from West Side Story (1961) and Astor Piazzolla's Tangazo (1970), it brings together composers from across the twentieth century, all connected by their belonging to the Americas. Moreover, all of these composers reconfigured the barriers between classical and popular music, combining them to produce a sound that illustrates their home region.
