Miguel del Aguila: Salon Buenos Aires

$ 14.99

Two Latin Grammy Award Nominations - Best Classical Album, Best Classical Composition

Miguel del Aguila was born in Uruguay, in 1957. He came to the USA in 1978, settling in California. Aguila's music draws from a wide range of influences and may be some of the most immediately appealing classical music being written today. In Aguila's music players are often asked to sing, play pop riffs, create extreme effects on their instruments, as well as playing with traditional virtuosity. Aguila's Latin American roots are apparent in this high energy ostinato-driven music, but there are also touches of the avant-garde, as well as a tongue in cheek approach that sends up South American culture. This is music that is fun to listen to and simply defies categorization, played with infectious high spirits by Camerata San Antonio.



“Camerata San Antonio plays all these works as if they have them in their blood, with uninhibited joy and commitment. The recording emphasizes the music’s considerable warmth. This is an altogether cheering release.” - American Record Guide

“Camerata San Antonio’s performances are as perfect as any composer could wish for; they obviously feel every nuance of the music, flowing seamlessly from one expressive or explosive moment to another. Enthusiastically recommended.” - Fanfare
