Golijov - Oceana; Tenebrae; 3 Songs
The reviews for Golijov's works are somewhat mixed and I must confess I fall into the negative group. These works are very derivative and unoriginal.They do not develop in the way classical music should. Maybe I am missing the point. There are a lot of lovely sounds from Dawn Upshaw and maybe they are aimed at a different audience - Karl Jenkins,Lloyd webber types but I have listened to this twice and got nothing out of it at all.If you want some really good contemporary south american music go to'Fiesta' conducted by the wonderful Dudamel.
