I have always loved the music, the captivating melodies, of Mexico and Latin America, some of my earliest LP music purchases were those of Herb Alpert (the 'Mariachi' sound) and Los Paraguayos. Oh the excitement of visiting Spain in the 1960s and not only seeing Los Paraguyos in concert but also enjoying a musical evening with strolling musicians at our table singing 'Cielito Lindo' and other favourite songs. We joined in the choruses, swaying from side to side, perfect happiness remembered forever.
How wonderful then to have Rolando Villazon, whose voice I adore, singing these beautiful Mexican/Latin American songs accompanied by the Simon Bolivar Soloists. Not being fluent in Spanish, I downloaded the English translation of the lyrics from the Deutschegrammophon website and truly appreciated the heartfelt emotion, sensual passion and poetry expressed in these classic songs.
I also have Florez' CD 'Sentimiento Latino' which has a large symphony orchestra backing for most tracks. Although charming, the orchestrations sound a little florid or 'Hollywood 1930s' at times and I can understand why Rolando wished to capture a more intimate feeling for the music on this CD and 'spark it's radiant fire'.
If you watched the delightful performance of pieces from 'Mexico' by Rolando Villazon and the SB Soloists at the iTunes Festival (available to download, it includes 'Perfidia' which is not on 'Mexico' and therefore well worth buying) you will have seen that this is very much music for a sophisticated and appreciative nightime audience. We are booked for the concert in December!

I have all Villazon's CDs and simply adore his way of singing, and as a native Mexican, I expected him to get really into mood for singing them properly. Just doesn't work for me. They don't sound authentic at all. The orchestration is poor, I don't know what's mexican in it? And Villazon is not in his best, you can hear quiet a lot of false notes. I tried and tried to like it, no way and simply discarded it from my collection.

I watched a programme on T.V. about the making of this DVD and, and as I was brought up in S. America, I knew a lot of the songs and that they would bring back happy memories.

However, I found that Rolando Villazon's voice was far too powerful for this type of music and lends itself far more to classical music.

I bought this having heard one track on CD Review (Radio 3) - it was warmly commended there. The trouble is that Villazon does every item loud or louder. It gets very wearing long before the end. I shall never listen to it again. What a pity, as the voice itself is superb.
