Sur, Caminos del Inka, Inc.’s latest recording, includes a rich selection of orchestral works from four Latin American countries (Argentina, Chile, Colombia and Peru) performed by the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Miguel Harth-Bedoya, the Grammy-nominated and Emmy Award-winning Founder and Artistic Director of Caminos del Inka, Inc.
The recording includes compositions spanning over two hundred years and explores the divergent landscapes of South America: from the coast to the mountains – all watched over by the Southern Cross as portrayed in Argentinean composer Esteban Benzecry’s Colores de la Cruz del Sur. Popular melodies and dance themes are illustrated in Tres Aires Chilenos and Retablos SinfÃ³nicos. In MejÃa’s PequeÃ±a Suite and Rebagliati’s Rapsodia Peruana the anniversaries of the founding of BogotÃ¡ and the independence of Peru are celebrated.
The music on the 70-minute disc was captured live in the splendid acoustics of the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall.
“played as smartly and stirringly as could be imagined.”
