"Where have I been while this guy has been recording some of the finest music in the world. If you like the early Sara Brightman works, you will love this. The same mix of latin popular music put together by someone who starts from a firm foundation in classical music. De Blasio is from Argentina, and the Porteno Tango is the base of all the music on this album. Buenas Aries is in Raul's soul, but this is not just folk music done by someone who learned classical. This is a master who has created great music based on a perfect understanding of just what music is and has a deep love of Agrentina. You have to hear 'Hasta que te Conoci' where his transition from classical Russian piano to the Tango will water your eyes. This is not great Argentine music. This is great music by an Argentine. You don't have to love classical music to love this. You do not have to love latin music to love this. It transcends everything."
