About LAMC Recordings:
As part of the LAMC’s mission to champion Latin American music, the center has funded and produced a variety of CDs featuring Latin American composers and performers. These CDs cover multiple genres and include performances by current and past students as well as professional musicians.
Some of the recordings are the product of joint efforts between the LAMC and other academic institutions who have a shared interest in the dissemination of a specific composer or music genre, such as the recording of Andrés Posada’s chamber works; some are the product of special commissions such as Mario Lavista’s Missa brevis. The collection also contains recordings of unique materials such as Ensemble Lipzodes’s recording of 16th-century Guatemalan music.
In 2011, the Latin American Music Center, under the direction of Carmen-Helena Tellez, launched a new collection of recordings commemorating its 50th anniversary (1961-2011) featuring selected archival recordings of prize winners of LAMC’s Annual Competition in the Performance of Music from Spain and Latin America, which ran from 1996-2010. That same year, the annual competition turned its focus solely to music from Latin America and was renamed the Latin American Recording Competition. This competition is open to students of Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, and winners of this competition continue to have their performances recorded and distributed on CD by the Latin American Music Center. These recordings are available through purchase, either though posted links or through contacting the LAMC directly, at email@example.com.
Inquiries about archival recordings should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
