Carlos Chavez: Indian Symphony No. 2 By Ensemble Recoveco & Ile-De-France National Orchestra
A Latin American tribute to India
Born on the 13th June 1899 in Mexico City, Mexico, Carlos Chavez was the seventh child of the family. Initially Romantic, yet eclectic, Chavez’s oeuvre spans a career of over six decades. As a work about India by a writer from Latin America, this international piece has the confidence of a well-travelled explorer. It has deafening moments with great clashes of the percussion, yet also has more gentle passages, reflecting the variance of the great country of India.
