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!Read more ›
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.
