Great Piece, Lame Performance

Here’s a video of a 2001 performance by the Berlin Philharmonic (!) of Juan Pablo Moncayo’s delightful Huapango. Unfortunately, it’s soddenly conducted by Placido Domingo, whose talents with the baton are distinctly inferior to those with his voice.

If you’d like to hear a sparkling performance of this piece at a low price, purchase Enrique Batiz’s with the Mexico Festival Orchestra.
