LA LEYENDA DEL KAKUY is the latest Navona release from acclaimed Spanish composer Osias Wilenski. Lauded for his compositional style by Gramophone, Audiophile Audition, and more, Wilenski’s unique works range from narrative symphonic poems to operatic spin-offs to instrumental miniatures.
The centerpiece of the album, La Leyenda del Kakuy, is Wilenski’s telling of the Argentine legend of the Kakuy, a classic story of the dichotomy between the worker and the idler, and the consequences each must face. La Leyenda del Kakuy is performed by Philadelphia’s Tapestry East ensemble led by conductor Ovidiu Marinescu. Also featured on LA LEYENDA DEL KAKUY are four instrumental works by Wilsenski, highlighting his penchant for composing expressive, neo-romantic pieces for solo instruments.
