Notes & Reviews:

"Three impressive cello concertos by Mexican composers, here in very fine performances and vivid sonics, though recorded in different venues and at different times by different orchestras. The superb Carlos Prieto is soloist in all three. At 32 minutes, Samuel Zyman's three-movement 1990 Cello Concerto is the most substantial and ambitiousJoaquin Gutierrez Heras, though born (in 1927) nearly three decades before Zyman, writes in a somewhat more modern, chromatic idiom, though by no means harsh or fragmentedFinally, there's the 1895 Cello Concerto of Ricardo Castro (1864-1907), a melodious, well-made, and agreeable work by what the liner notes describe as "probably the most important Mexican composer of the 19th Century." It's the equal of anything I know of by any contemporaneous American." - American Record Guide
