Two summery releases are named July's Choices
In The Studio: The Orchestra of the Americas
Fresh from its debut recording with Linn Records, The Orchestra of the Americas takes a break from its 2019 Mexico Crescendo tour to record its second album with Carlos Miguel Prieto. Musical America’s 2019 Conductor of the Year is joined by Jorge Federico Osorio who is the soloist in Spanish composer Manuel de Falla’s highly atmospheric piano concerto, Nights in the Gardens of Spain.
Osorio has been lauded throughout the world for his superb musicianship, powerful technique, vibrant imagination, and deep passion. He is the recipient of several international prizes and awards, including the prestigious Medalla Bellas Artes, the highest honour granted by Mexico’s National Institute of Fine Arts.
The programme is completed by de Falla’s The Three Cornered Hat Suite. The recording is due for release in Spring 2020.
