The performance of my work oscurecimiento gradual by pianist Larry Axelrod as part of the New Music Chicago Festival concerts held on October 10 received a nice mention in Chicago Classical Review. The review by John von Rhein excerpted below can be found here.

“A different sort of musical progression—in this case, a slow evolution from light to darkly decaying sounds—forms the expressive parameters of Orlando Jacinto Garcia’s haunting piano piece Oscurecimiento gradual. The work’s eight minutes posit a kind of spectral fluidity from the interplay of timbres, textures and tempos”.
