WORKS FOR VOICE AND PIANO /
Maya Villanueva, soprano / Patrick Langot, cello / Romain David, piano
(2016, Klarthe Records)
To mark the centenary of the birth of Alberto Ginastera, soprano Maya Villanueva, cellist Patrick Langot and pianist Romain David offer us with this double integrale of his music for voice and piano and cello and piano a panorama of his work in multiple facets. An initiatory musical journey from the folklore of the Pampa of the Canciones to the modern sounds of the sonata dedicated to his wife, cellist Aurora Natola. As a final highlight, the first world recording of Tres instantes oníricos by Gabriel Sivak pays tribute to the influence of the greatest Argentinian composer of the 20th century.
"Soprano Maya Villanueva, a fine musician, has a very nice voice, close to Maria Bayo's." - Opéra Magazine / ****
"Maya Villanueva is ideal for the tone, but also the atmosphere that she knows how to create in each melody, with an airy and clear timbre, here disembodied, and the next moment, voluptuously fleshy." - Classica / ****
