Description

Sounds of the Americas consists of four works written by some of the most unique and widely performed composers in the United States today. This album features the world-premiere recording of the Latin Grammy Award-winning piece "Inca Dances" by Gabriela Lena Frank. All the works on this album are based on subject matters born in the Americas:

"Sierra describes a tropical night in his native Puerto Rico, and Frank muses about the Inca Empire's kings and rituals. Kernis pays tribute to the '70s, while Daugherty turns to rock and roll songs such as Hendrix's 'The Wind Cries Mary' to write an elegy for Cuba, past and present."
-Manuel Barrueco
