Latin American composers have served as a rich source of compelling music for centuries.  This program features extraordinary compositions by three of the most celebrated 20thand 21st century Latin voices. Cuban-born composer Tania León has been a fearless voice for cultural diversity since arriving in the United States in 1967. Her 2012 string trio À Tres Voces is an evocative exploration of unique sounds and complex rhythms. Grammy Award winning Argentinian composer Oswaldo Golijov is known for his mesmerizing and deeply moving compositions. Mariel for cello and marimba was written in memory of a dear friend.  Fellow Argentinian Astor Piazzolla is universally recognized as the foremost composer of tango music. His Histoire du Tango, performed in a setting for violin and marimba, takes the listener to the night clubs and cafes of early 20th century Buenos Aires. 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the late composer’s birth.

 Literally gripping the arms of my seat, I was not the only one propelled on this rollercoaster of delightful music.

 Every section and soloist within the orchestra played their role with strength and beauty; every tree proud and tall. Tali served as an excellent guide leading the forces with assured confidence. The overall sound was lush and, yes, intense just where it needed to be.

 A lifetime of musical moments, cinematic in scope, gave every section of the orchestra a leading role at one time or another. Chief among them was the virtuosic solo of concertmaster Daniel Jordan.

 It was a thrill ride resulting in an explosion of audience enthusiasm.

 Andrew Lane, the Orchestra’s Principal Pops Conductor, knows how to program a winning event and this concert had something for everyone. It also brought in a whole new audience that seemed dazzled by the performances.

 The Sarasota Orchestra played a program this past weekend filled with so much color, it was like visiting the Louvre.
