Rolando Villazon / Xavier De Maistre

Serenata Latina (CD)

An Album with new, intimate arrangements for voice and harp of Latin American Songs. Due to the cultural diversity, where indigenous, European and African influences meet, the Latin American countries poses one of the richest Lied repertoires of the world.

An abundance of variety in rhythm, melody and narrative forms comes together on this album of Mexican tenor Rolando Villazón accompanied by French star harpist Xavier de Maistre.

Serenata Latina is in a way a collage of sounds, where these different shapes of the Latin American canciones come to life in their sensually emotional essence:

Deep longing, somber facets of pain, melancholy, desire and loss dominate the very intimate color palette of this so beautifully heartfelt recording, however accompanied by vigorous life-affirming and dance-like pieces.
