The Youth Orchestra of the Americas is made up of talented musicians, from 18 to 28 years old, carefully selected to represent 22 countries in North, South and Central America. Under the inspired and dynamic direction of the young Quebec conductor Jean-Pascal Hamelin, they offer us a refreshing version of Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony, also known as the New World Symphony. This is followed by the irresistible, “Danzón number 2″, a nostalgic yet lively piece by Mexican composer Arturo Marquez. The album ends with a dazzling “Bootlegger’s Tarentella” by Canadian composer John Estacio.
Recorded live in concert, in August 2009, by Fidelio Music, this recording benefited from the unique acoustics of the Domaine Forget, in Charlevoix. Music lovers will enjoy the refined performance, while audiophiles will delight in René Laflamme’s “high resolution” sound recording.
