Utah Symphony: Symphonic Dances
This exciting new album contains Leonard Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances, and the world premiere recording of Gabriela Lena Frank’s Three Latin American Dances.
Music and dance are as old as mankind itself. This recording presents dance modes from three cultures: music by an American of Peruvian-Jewish descent (Frank, b.1972 Berkeley CA) living in California, an American steeped in the culture of New York City (Bernstein), and a Russian (Rachmaninoff) living in America.
