José Pablo Moncayo – Huapango – Alondra de la Parra & L’Orchestre de Paris

José Pablo Moncayo is one of the most important of the 20th century Mexican classical composers.  His composition, Huapango, is brilliantly performed here by the Paris Orchestra under the baton of Mexican American conductor, Alondra de la Parra.  I would go to a concert just to see de la Parra conduct in her unique and spirited style.  [Click on Full Screen icon in the lower right corner to best appreciate the video]
