Mexico at 200: The Young Generation

Alondra de la Parra Presents Today's Young Composers and Tomorrow's Icons

Friday, May 28, 2010

In the final installment of Mexico at 200, Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas conductor and New York native Alondra de la Parra examines the fast-paced and animated 21st century music of young Mexican composers.

The Young Generation explores the most recent school of living composers, with musicians such as the jazz-inclined Eugenio Toussaint; neo-nationalist Enrico Chapela and his soccer-inspired Ínguesu; Gabriela Ortiz, part of the emergent school of young female composers; and Martín Capella, winner of the first edition of the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas' Young Composers Competition.

Hear Mexico at 200 every day at 7 a.m. and p.m., starting Tuesday, May 25, and continuing through Friday, May 28. Mexico at 200 celebrates the Bicentennial of Mexican Independence.

Mexico at 200 is curated and hosted by Alondra de la Parra, with research assistance from Joshua Feltman. The producer is Alex Ambrose, and the executive producer is Limor Tomer.
