Silvestre Revueltas (1899-1940)

Silvestre Revueltas (April 4, 1967)

A program prepared by KPFK music director, William Malloch, on the orchestral music of Silvestre Revueltas, the colorful Mexican composer. Malloch illustrates the composers tendency to orchestrate Mexican folk music and compares two performances of Sensemay‡ in which the tempos of the piece varies dramatically. Also included is the broadcast of a rare recording of a lengthy suite compiled by the conductor Jose Limantour, from Revueltas music to the film La Noche de los Mayas.
