Notes & Reviews:
José Luis Domínguez is one of Chile's leading musicians and the Resident Director of the Santiago Philharmonic Orchestra. Immersion in opera and ballet productions in the city's Teatro Municpal inspired him to compose a large-scale symphonic work, a full-length classical ballet that can work as a stand-alone piece. Its subject is the nineteenth-century Californian brigand Joaquín Murieta, often seen as the inspiration for Zorro. Cast in the great symphonic tradition of film music, with rich themes, The Legend of Joaquín Murieta is an exciting contemporary "action ballet".Notes & Reviews:
