Thursday, February 05, 2015
This week features a recording of the late Spanish conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos conducting the New York Philharmonic in two secular cantatas: selections from Falla’s Atlántida and Orff’s complete Carmina Burana.
The international cast that Frühbeck assembled for these performances features American sopranos Erin Morley and Emalie Savoy; American tenor Nicholas Phan; South African baritone Jacques Imbrailo; the Spanish chorus Orpheón Pamplonés, directed by Igor Ijurra Fernández; and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, directed by Dianne Berkun Menaker.
