Notes & Reviews:

Balada's 'Cello Concerto No. 2' is a blending of Negro spirituals and jazz elements with avant-garde techniques. The 'Concerto for Four Guitars and Orchestra' belongs to his second, avant-garde period. It makes a fascinating contrast with Balada's fourth concerto, the 1997 'Concierto Magico' which, like the 'Cello Concerto', mixes ethnic ideas with contemporary sonorities. This is a world premiere recording.
