Miguel del Águila

“a strong individual and vibrant voice that communicates with extraordinary power… His command of the orchestra is extraordinary and his sense of structure and direction create works that are compelling and memorable… one of the most significant voices in our compositional landscape today” – JoAnn Falletta, conductor

​​”magical and totally unclassifiable… widely exuberant… exquisitely imaginative… an absolutely mesmerizing new work” – Ronald Grames, Fanfare

About twice Grammy nominated CD Salon Buenos Aires:
“It’s a gorgeous, beguiling album, by turns – and often in the same track – nostalgic and ferocious, tender and turbulent.” – San Antonio Current
