Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra Principal Clarinet Chair

Sabios Árboles, mágicos árboles

Jack Delano, who was born in Russia, raised in Philadelphia, and lived all his adult life in Puerto Rico, authored and illustrated a charming little book, meant to encourage an appreciation of trees on the earth. It was turned into a filmed cartoon by the Conservation Trust (Fideicomiso de Conservación de Puerto Rico,) for which Jack wrote the music, asking Camerata Caribe to record it. The result is a charming film, available in English and/or Spanish on DVD. The music (scored for flute, clarinet, bassoon, percussion and piano) can be played in concert version, being premiered in a Camerata Caribe concert at the Conservatory on November 29, 1987.
