Notes & Reviews:

Brazilian-American composer Miguel Kertsman (b. 1965) captivates audiences internationally with prolific compositions and critically acclaimed productions spanning the boundaries of conventional music genres. Kertsman's works have been performed or recorded at premiere venues in New York, London, Rio de Janeiro, Vienna, Sao Paulo, Linz, and Chicago; by artists such as Angelika Kirchschlager, John Williams, Dennis Russell Davies, and The Ahn Trio; and released on CD by labels such as Sony Classical and RCA Victor Group. His new album features two of his early works: Amazônia Symphonic Poem (1987), written at age 21 as a protest against the destruction of the Amazon rainforest, and Sinfonia Concertante Brasileira for Flute and Orchestra (1988), featuring Vienna Philharmonic Principal Flutist Wolfgang Schulz as soloist. The album is completed with the slightly later Chamber Symphony No. 1, "Acorda!" (1995), scored for a "darker orchestra" (lower range woodwinds and strings, organ, with multiple percussionists and two female voices). Dennis Russell Davies conducts the Bruckner Orchester Linz on this premium audiophile recording.
