Synopsis

Album Description
Recorded in 1987, tenor Raúl Giménez presents a panorama of popular 20th-century songs by composers of his native Argentina. These songs have their roots in Argentinean folk-idioms and in the simple lyricism of country life, and most are written in popular style. The fresh, rustic harmonies of Buchardo complement the strongly rhythmic elements, reflecting popular dance rhythms that characterize the selections of Guastavino. This reverence for tradition is continued in the songs of Ginastera, with their clear references to fast dance rhythms.

A Treasure
Stephan A. Hammel | Houston, Tx | 06/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is a real find. The latin american composers here represented usually live on the sidelines of the art musical canon, but are here presented in stunning performances by a latin american tenor. The musicianship at the piano is wonderful and the singing is nearly all thoughtful and beautiful. If anyone is at all interested in exploring this little heard niche of song repertoire, this album is a nice way to start."
