My latest CD on Toccata Classics Orlando Jacinto Garcia Orchestral Music Volume 2 received a very favorable review in Fanfare this month. The reviewer Colin Clarke closed by saying This is fascinating, stimulating fare, excellently recorded in Málaga’s Sala Beethoven and provided with a booklet essay by Sarah Cahill that is a model of its kind. Bravo! You can find the entire review here
