Latin American Orchestral Works

“All the pieces are performed with great conviction and receive vibrant recordings full of vim and vigour as befits their lively character. Chandos's sound is typically rich and clear.” --Gramophone, November 2011

“...Castagna’s excellence in this repertoire is not surprising. What might surprise some, though, is how idiomatic the German orchestra is. ...At no point sis I feel that the music’s full potential was not being realised.  Fine ... engineering lets the music’s colours some forward. As the days get shorter in the northern hemisphere, ‘Fiesta Criolla’ will keep the spirits  up!” --International Record Review, November 2011

“... the Württemberg musicians play as though they had never experienced a day under 85°F in their lives. Typically full  Chandos sound  helps to make this enjoyable, good hearted disc a winner.! --Fanafare, November/December 2011

"This is a rather good collection, varied and stimulating, with conductor and orchestra doing the music proud ... with maestro Castagna clearly having a bent for the music of South America (he himself is Argentinean) and this is his fifth Chandos release of this type of thing. He is clearly in his element and takes his Baden-Württemberg musicians flying along, too. The recording is vivid ... Musically, there is a great deal of pleasure to be found here fun, sentiment, siestas and fiestas."
