 Update me on new releases by Balada

Leonardo Balada (b9/22/1933)

Born in Barcelona on 22 September 1933, Leonardo Balada graduated from the Conservatorio del Liceu of that city and The Juilliard School in 1960. He studied composition with Vincent Persichetti, Aaron Copland and conducting with Igor Markevitch. Since 1970 he has been teaching at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he is University Professor of Composition. Some of his best known works were written in a dramatic avant-garde style in the sixties (Guernica, María Sabina, Steel Symphony, No-res). He is credited with pioneering a blend of ethnic music with those avant-garde techniques, creating a very personal style starting with Sinfonía en Negro: Homage to Martin Luther King (1968), followed by Homage to Casals (1975) and Homage to Sarasate (1975). Balada has received several international awards. He also received an Academy Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters that “honors outstanding artistic achievement and acknowledges the composer who has arrived at his or her own voice”.
