Orlando Jacinto García: Sombras IIuminadas
Liner Notes   Cat. No. NWCR900     Release Date: 2002-01-01
Over the past decade, much has been written about the second wave of American émigré composers, who unlike the first wave of Europeans, have arrived in the United States from Asian and Latin American countries. In such writings, there is an inevitable tendency to generalize about these composers and to describe, for example, how the Asian composers have introduced a more contemplative approach to timbre to our music or how the Latin American composers have incorporated rhythmic elements from their homelands.

Such generalizations are no help at all when approaching the music of Cuban émigré composer Orlando Jacinto García (b. 1954) whose subtle, painterly, almost rhythm-less music has less in common with son or clavé than with the music of composers like George Crumb, John Luther Adams, and Morton Feldman, with whom García studied or to whom many of his works are dedicated. In fact, García’s music is a direct refutation to the notion of music emanating from national identity. For that reason, and for its sheer sonic expanse, his music lives in a soundworld beyond borders. — Frank Oteri, from the liner notes
