Album Description:

VOCAL & INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC FROM THE AMERICAS is North-South Recordings' 2004 album of chamber music written during the 20th century. The album showcases the many styles of music written by composers from the Americas during the last 75 years. It opens with two examples of Mestizo Modernism, a unique style fashioned around indigenous and European sounds developed in Mexico in the 1920's. Vocals and instrumental works by composers from Brazil, Canada and the United States follow. These compositions espouse different degrees of post-modern sensibility and awareness. The rigors and formal logic found in the earlier examples give way to an eclectic melange of seemingly incongruent and divergent elements. These compositions deserve to reach a wider public. They represent a wide variety of aesthetic points of view, while exploiting to the fullest the technical and musical possibilities of their medium. North-South Consonance, Inc. is proud to feature the superb performers who frequently appear in its New York City concert series. The listener will be pleasantly surprised by the diversity and originality found in this compilation. Great care was taken to preserve the integrity of the concert hall ambiance when this album was recorded and mastered. Indeed, the listener will find that the natural resonance of the concert hall and the music's wide dynamic range were captured successfully. Please use a moderate volume setting when plaing this album.  

Recording information: Performing Arts Center of the University at Albany, SUN (08/01/1999-08/05/1999).
