Michael Tilson Thomas has received a lot of press through the years, but I haven't really been that impressed with that many of his recordings. His San Francisco Symphony recordings have been major disappointments for me. They almost seem too polished and the playing, while certainly at a high level, seems to be missing a certain bite. This recording titled "Latin American Classics" is really one of the best recordings I've heard from him. The orchestra that appears here are the New World Symphony Orchestra, which is a youth orchestra assembled by MTT himself. Don't let the word "youth" fool you. These young players can play and certainly give the Simon Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela a run for their money, but both orchestras are fantastic, especially in this repertoire.

This recording starts off with Carlos Chavez's "Sinfonia India," which is a brilliant piece of music. The rhythms and harmonies are very intriquing. Chavez actually wrote this piece with his own native people in mind. He is actually referring to the "Indians" of his country Mexico. It's a great piece of music. Another highlight for me was Revueltas' very popular "Sensemaya," which is a very barbaric, ritualistic type of piece. I heard someone say it's like a Mexican "Bolero." I would agree, but this piece blows the weak "Bolero" out of the water. Sorry I had to say it! Another highlight was Ginastera's "Estancia" ballet suite. This is also a very aggressive piece that's full of energy. There are also some lesser known works here by Roldan and Caturla that are quite fine. The whole disc is thoroughly enjoyable. The playing and conducting are consistent throughout (a rare feat for MTT) and the audio quality is excellent.

Anyone interested in getting outside of their comfort zone should acquire this disc. It will hopefully inspire you to pick up some other Latin American classical recordings. Highly recommended.

This, IMHO, is one of MTT's best recordings and his Florida-based student New World Symphony play like demons possessed. Treat yourself to this original Argo recording or the Eloquence reissue Latin American Classics. Not to be missed!

The article is in excellent condition. The publication is excellent, admirable, enviable.It is a very interesting compilation of Latin American concert music with works by the most influential composers from the vast region. The interpretations are difficult to equal. It is a very useful tool for music educators who focus on topics of Music Appreciation and Music of Latin America.
