An album of Latin American Songs with new intimate arrangements for voice and harp.
Because of its cultural diversity where indigenous, European and African influences meet, the Latin American countries have one of the richest Lied repertoires in the world.
An abundance of variety in rhythm, melody and narrative forms comes together here, with 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 colour palette of this beautifully heartfelt recording, which is also accompanied by vigorous life affirming and dance like pieces.
