SIERRA, R.: Sinfonia No. 3, "La Salsa" / Beyond the Silence of Sorrow / Borikén / El Baile (Guth, Puerto Rico Symphony, M. Valdés)

The sonic colour and distinctive rhythms enshrined in these four works provide further evidence of the art of internationally acclaimed Puerto Rican composer, Roberto Sierra. The award-winning Sinfonía No. 3 ‘La Salsa’ owes its inspiration to the music of the Spanish Caribbean and is a salsa of older and newer rhythms, intoxicatingly presented amidst revelry and dance. The instrumentally vivid Borikén is based on the baroque chaconne but with a Latin twist, while El Baile invokes traditional music in a wholly distinctive way. Beyond the Silence of Sorrow is a captivatingly lyrical song cycle.
