Latin Passion

Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra

With its cross-fertilisation of Indian, African and Spanish influences, the music of South America is alive with colour, rhythm and movement. American composers like Gershwin and Copland were captivated by the swing of Latin dances, but it was the great Argentinian tango composer Astor Piazzolla who took the smouldering seduction of his national dance into the world of orchestral music. Walther Castro has this music in his blood and brings the authentic sound of Buenos Aires to the Hong Kong Philharmonic.
