Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela
Eduardo Mata - Conductor
The four works on this disc represent four different ways of turning into sound the primeval pulse of Latin American soil. Each one on its own terms, these peices by Orbón, Villa-Lobos, Chávez and Estévez are an ideal vehicle for the listener to approach the telluric forces of a continent whose best composers have found a way to synthesise in sound the fundamental qualities of landscape, ritual and culture, through works that transcend the mere symphonic transcription of folklore and become highly individual musical statements that at the same time are universally representative of the Latin American spirit.
