Oceana recording released by Deutsche Grammophon
 
Deutsche Grammophon has released its third album of the works of Osvaldo Golijov. Entitled Oceana, the recording features the composition of the same name, written for orchestra, three guitars, harp and voice, performed by the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus under Robert Spano, and the Brazilian/jazz singer Luciana Souza. Two other works are also featured on the album: Tenebrae, performed by the Kronos Quartet for whom the string quartet version of the work was written, and Three Songs for Soprano and Orchestra performed by Dawn Upshaw, who premiered the work in 2002, joined here by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Spano.

A future Deutsche Grammophon release will feature Golijov's La Pasión según San Marcos (St. Mark Passion).
