Podcast: Gold Rush. The Legend of Joaquin Murieta.
June 17, 2016
The Chilean musician José Luis Dominguez has taken his experience of conducting ballet and applied it to the composing of his energised score for the ballet The Legend of Joaquin Murieta. The music glitters in sync with its California Gold Rush setting. Shades of Zorro permeate. Rooted in the great tradition of symphonic film music, bad guys, good guys, brawling battles, the bustle of mid-19th century settlements and a thread of love colour this ‘action ballet’ score from first to last. Raymond Bisha is your swashbuckling guide to this new Naxos release.
