Album Review

Ortiz, Pablo – “Oscuro ” – [Albany]

Cousin Mary   1/12/2009   A Library, CD

Features San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, a local group that champions and plays music by today???s composers, and the San Francisco based chorus, Chanticleer. Pablo Ortiz is from Argentina, studied composition at Columbia, and now teaches at UC Davis. Very beautiful compositions, strongly influenced by Ortiz???s Argentinean background. The choral work, Oscuro (Dark) is based on work from South American poets. Milongo is variously translated as Argentina folkloric music or as a dance related to the tango.

I especially liked Track 11, Hipermilonga.
