Product Description

The fifth album of works on Naxos devoted to the internationally acclaimed Puerto Rican composer Roberto Sierra. This is the first recording by the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra on Naxos.


"...we have on this disc three highly entertaining orchestral works saturated with Latin rhythms and melodic motives. The Symphony No. 3 actually casts a wider net than just "Salsa." The performances, featuring Sierra's home town team under the capable baton of Maximiamo Valdés, do the music proud, and the engineering is vivid..."
--David Hurwitz,, January 24, 2016

"...this should be counted among the best contemporary classical recordings of the year."
--Lewis J. Whittington,, February 10, 2016

"The program is an excellent one. "Sinfonia No. 3 'La Salsa'" (2005) builds upon the ostinatos and melodic dance figures that form an integral part of Salsa but then ultimately treats them as symphonic themes for development in a diatonic-chromatic idiom. Sierra thus manages to capture the vitality of Latin American music while also placing it within the realm of modern new music classical..."

" It is music that should appeal to a large audience without compromising its seriousness and Latin-American vitality. Rather outstanding music, I would say. Very recommended..." --Grego Applegate Edwards,, February 17, 2016
