Young People's Chorus of NYC and La Sociedad Coral LatinoAmericana Set for Symphony Space, 10/12
The prominent Latin American composer/pianist Rafael "Bullumba" Landestoy is considered a National Treasure in the Dominican Republic, the land of his birth. One of the most prolific composers of the bolero, his music has been performed and recorded by such notables as Celia Cruz, Toña la Negra, Alberto Beltrán, and Vicentico Valdés. In recent years Mr. Landestoy has focused on classical music, a passion he developed at the National Conservatory in Santo Domingo and includes pieces for guitar, art songs for soprano and piano, and more than two dozen piano works.
