Notes & Reviews:

Silvestre Revueltas' best known work, the epically proportioned "La Noche des los Mayas" (the Night of the Mayas) is one of a number of scores written for the cinema. La coronela (The Girl Colonel) is an unfinished ballet heard on this recording in an orchestral version by Eduardo Hernandez Moncada with additional music, arranged by Limantour, from two film scores, "Vamonos con Pancho Villa!" and "Los de abajo" that Revueltas composed on the subject of the Mexican Revolution.

Barrios and his forces generate excitement, and the music's rhythmic splendour is quite captivating.
