Reissue of a classic, historic and still the best recording of the complete 6 symphonies by Carlos Chávez by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Eduardo Mata. Chávez is the most important “classical” composer of his native Mexico. He was the first national composer to embrace the classical symphonic form, infusing it with elements of Mexican folk music and dances: festive, vibrant and exhilarating! Eduardo Mata is a true master in this repertoire, and his recording with the London Symphony Orchestra still sounds as fresh and exciting as in its recording year 1981.

Carlos Chávez received formal training as a pianist, but was largely self-taught as a composer. His formative years coincided with a time of intense nationalism in Mexico brought about by the end of the Mexican revolution. His investigation into Indian cultures, native folk music and dance forms were of significant influence in his music, which was characterized by a highly distinctive use of cross-rhythms, syncopation, irregular meter and colorful orchestration.

4'33" - The Music of Varèse, Chávez, Cage & Harrison (Amadinda Percussion Group)

Amadinda Percussion Group - 4'33" (The Music of Varèse, Chávez, Cage & Harrison) (1993)
Classical | EAC (APE, CUE & NO LOG) | 158 MB

Without a doubt this is the most splendid recording of 4'33" available to date. The Amadinda Percussion Group brings a sensitivity & brio to the piece that have rarely been approached. The tempo is a bit faster than usual but this is a welcome change that resonates closer to Cage's intention. The sound quality is first-rate: every nuance is finely chiselled to perfection while the dynamics are tracked with absolute fidelity.
