01. Auschwitz (nunca se olvidarán)
02. Varadero Memories
03. In Memoriam Earle Brown
Miami-based Orlando Jacinto García was born in Havana in 1954 and studied with Morton Feldman.
He has inherited some of Feldman’s concerns: his music likewise evolves gradually over slow-moving spans of time, unfolding like the leaves of a plant, generating colours as with the gentle turning of a kaleidoscope.
The elegiac Auschwitz (they will never be forgotten), a meditation for chorus and orchestra, captures something of the infinite sorrow evoked by the memory of such institutionalised cruelty.
Varadero Memories is an abstract recollection of a Cuban beach where as a child he spent time with his grandparents.
The hypnotic In Memoriam Earle Brown pays elegant, understated tribute to a seminal figure in American modernism.
