This fantastic new recording contains works by celebrated composers from North and South America, which reveal the musical essence of this great continent.
This album includes the original piano solo version of George Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue and the rhythms of Argentine Dances by Astor Piazzolla and Alberto Ginastera.
Piazzola’s Three Preludes were composed in New York and are one of the few original compositions for piano solo.
The album also features an original composition titled ‘Reminiscences’ by Daniel Levy himself, allowing us to appreciate him both as a performer and a composer in this special occasion.
