Alma Matters

by Mia Clarke, May 2010

She did a stunning job. From upbeat works such as Carlos Chavez´s El Tropico to more introspective works by Ricardo Castro and the flat-out drama of Federico Ibarra´s Sinfonia No. 2, no two pieces are alike. While the range of works is extraordinarily diverse, de la Parra´s strong, passionate direction imbues each with characteristic soulfulness. She coaxes bright, nuanced tones out of her orchestra with compelling expressiveness.
