The four American composers in this recording, Americascapes, wrote music that received widespread recognition, but none of them enjoyed the popular ‘success’ of others such as Bernstein, Gershwin or Copland. They are relatively little-known works, a repertoire that does not feature in the big concert circuits and which the Basque National Orchestra has recorded under the direction of its American music director, Robert Trevino.

Although experts point out that it is unusual to find Charles Martin Loeffler, Henry Cowell, Carl Ruggles and Howard Hanson sharing their music on the same album, Trevino has considered this original repertoire appropriate. He has taken his exploration very far and has found a piece by Hanson, Before the Dawn, that has had to wait a century to be acknowledged and recorded for the first time. We should also highlight the soloist role of the viola d'amore in La Mort de Tintagiles by Charles Martin Loeffler and which corresponded to Delphine Dupuy, the orchestra's soloist viola player.

  1. La Mort de Tintagiles  (Charles Martin Loeffler).
  2. Evocations (Carl Ruggles).
