Latin America has a five-century musical history forged by many different indigenous peoples clashing with Spain and Portugal, both ambitious colonial powers. Bill has conducted music from Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina and has a deep appreciation for Latin America’s vast and varied musical landscape. He insists “we can hear the echoes of those collisions” into our era. Highlighting Padilla and Ponce as well as Ginastera, Villa-Lobos and Piazzolla, among others, Bill begins with harmonies from Mexico and extends throughout the region’s diverse orchestral and operatic works.
