Not up to the standard of "Maria" on Teldec
(2 out of 5 stars)
"This discs shares the two main performers (vocalist Jairo and bandoneonista Binelli) with the Piazolla operetta "Maria de Buenos Aires" on Teldec. That CD deserves 4 or 5 stars but this one is a cheapo on 3 counts. Firstly the general quality on this Milan isn't as good as the Teldec, even though it was recorded recently (1996). Secondly the playing time 39'31 is skimpy. Thirdly there are no texts and barely a word on the collaboration between Borges and Piazolla. When some of the tracks are simply poems read by actor Lito Cruz you'd think the poetry would rate equal treatment in the booklet. Not a great advert for other releases from Milan Records."
Not as good as the operetta Maria de Buenos Aires.
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Binelli and Jairo are familiar from the line up on the Maria de Buenos Aires (2CD) conducted by Kremer. That recording is excellent. This, while okay, isn't as musically interesting and lacks decent notes or texts. The texts to tracks 1-5 can be found on the University of Munich's 'Tango Home Page', but not for the main item on the CD 'El Hombre de la esquina rosada'."
