Synopsis

Product Description
''South-of-the-border crossover with an appealing difference... Daryl Runswick's tangy arrangements of Latin dance favorites, pop standards and light classics sound as if they were written expressly for massed cellos (with rhythm backing). Conductor Geoffrey Simon puts his 24 London cellists through their paces smartly. A delightful and self-recommending addition to Cala's London Sound Series.'' -- John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune Latin Cello crosses classical borders with its earthy, massed-cello sound applied to the beloved melodies and spicy rhythms of Latin favorites. Starting with the sparkling Libertango by cult composer Astor Piazzolla, the selections traverse the musical spectrum from classical to commercial, unified by the uniquely rich cello sonority and the skilful arrangements of Daryl Runswick. Sensual, sultry, indulgent and luxurious, this recording brings out the latin in all of us!
