Description: See April 2011 (04M080) for background. Colina's high-quality, brilliantly orchestrated, eclectically-inspired orchestral works are one of the greatest little-known secrets. Everything here is colorful, heartfelt and repays repeated listening with the Cuban-inspired primitivism of Quinta Del Sordo my favorite. Anastasia Khitruk (violin), Lukasz Dlugosz (flute), London Symphony Orchestra; Ira Levin, Ransom Wilson (Isles).
