The music of the Cuban-American composer Orlando Jacinto Garcia inhabits a sonic universe of it's very own, one where the musical landscape is constructed in order to evoke a thorough suspension of time. The three works on the present release correspond almost precisely to the past three decades of Garcia's career and thus present for the interpreter and listener alike a kind of survey of his development. Garcia's mentor and teacher was Morton Feldman and the aesthetic of Feldman and his inspiration are preoccupations which color several of Garcia's compositions. Garcia has composed over 200 works for a wide variety of genres and instrumental combinations, and has established himself firmly in the new-music world with his time-suspending, haunting explorations. Born in 1954 in Havana, he moved to the USA in 1961. As part of his great success he has received four Grammy nominations awards and honors too many to mention and his music has been recorded for 14 labels as well as Metier. A dedicated educator, Garcia is Professor of Music and Composer in Residence at the School of Music, Florida International University. The Amernet String Quartet has been described by The Strad as a group of exceptional technical ability' and praised by the New York Times for intelligent and immensely satisfying playing'. The ensemble is Quartet in Residence at Florida International University and it's performance schedule has taken it all round the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The Amernet is a strong advocate for new music and also for high quality neglected works of the past.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
