Editorial Reviews

Product Description

This sounds more like an anthology of Mexican orchestral music than the work of one composer. Sensemayá is the best-known music here, and it fulfills our expectation of Revueltas as a kind of Mexican Stravinsky, with a folk-influenced base supporting tangy dissonances and exciting rhythms. Some of the music in the two other scores is similarly adventurous, while other sections are almost pops-concert material. The Night of the Mayas is film music, uncommonly interesting for such work. The Girl Colonel is an unfinished ballet, completed by two other Mexican composers with sections from other Revueltas film scores. It's all thoroughly involving and worthwhile music, well played by an obscure, recently formed (1989) Mexican orchestra and vividly recorded. Because of its mix of well-known and uncommon music, the disc serves equally well as an introduction to Revueltas and as a delight to those who already love his music. It's also an even better bargain than the Naxos disc. --Leslie Gerber

Format: Audio CD
Este CD reúne dos de las tres obras mayores de Revueltas: Sensemayá y La noche de los Mayas (solo falta la obra maestra absoluta del compositor: Homenaje a Federico García Lorca). Como feliz complemento, el ballet La coronela, que Revueltas dejó inconcluso a su muerte en 1940. Las realizaciones son de primer nivel. La Orquesta Sinfónica de Aguascalientes y su director, Enrique Barrios, sobresalen en La noche de los Mayas y en La Coronela, y ofrecen una versión del clásico Sensemayá que no desmerece frente a las mejores referencias: Bernstein (SONY), Mata (RCA), Salonen (SONY), en orden de preferencia personal, todas disponibles en Amazon. La grabación es impecable. Muy recomendable

Many Mayan art reproductions hang on the walls of our Mexican home or stand on canterra pedestals. This music, played by the Agua Calientes Orchestre, one of Mexico's best, wafts like sea mist around the figures in a rhythm that seems, mysteriously, to bring them to life.
