Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor | Nashville Symphony Chorus | Tucker Biddlecombe, chorus director | Aquiles Machado, tenor | Juan Tomás Martínez, baritone 


Aaron Copland: El Salón México
Astor Piazzolla: Sinfonía Buenos Aires
Antonio Estévez: Cantata Criolla | Live Recording

When Aaron Copland first visited Mexico, he remarked, “Mexico has turned out even grander than I expected, and I expected pretty grand things.” El Salón Mexico draws upon that sentiment, headlining a program inspired by Latin America’s beauty and culture. Piazzolla’s Sinfonía Buenos Aires captures the tango’s provocative essence, and Giancarlo Guerrero has invited Aquiles Machado and Juan Tomás Martinez as soloists for Antonio Estévez’s Cantata Criolla, a Faustian singing contest between Florentino and the Devil.
