Notes & Reviews:

Madrid-born Tomás Marco is a multi award-winning and prolific composer whose compact Symphony No. 2 is a single 'Espacio cerrado' or 'Closed Space', expressed using a massive orchestra. As the subtitle 'Gaia's Dance' suggests, the colourful and rhythmic Symphony No. 8 borrows elements of dances from different parts of the world. Marco's Symphony No. 9 draws inspiration from the primeval sea spirit 'Thalassa', and combines studies in sonority with medieval music sources to create a work which unfolds in a single, extended breath.

David's Review Corner
The music must present an orchestra with many challenges... the Malaga Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Jose Serebrier, communicate the vastness of Marco's musical language. The recording offers plenty of inner detail.

Fanfare Magazine, September/October 2012
This is part of Naxos's Spanish Classics series, and is worth investigating if you like your orchestral music to be thick, angry, colorful, and on the teasing verge of atonality.
