Bernarda Fink (mezzo-soprano), Marcos Fink (baritone) & Carmen Piazzini (piano)
Accompanied by a noted specialist in Argentine piano music, brother and sister make a rare appearance together to honour a colourful musical heritage, the ‘chamber song’ born in Buenos Aires around 1900 and passed on from generation to generation right up to Guastavino and Astor Piazzolla. The subject here is love, love of a generous land, and memories: each song subtly distils a serene melancholy which has the flavour of life itself and the consciousness of the passage of time.
“As much as popular Latin American music, these songs burst with gorgeous, heartbreaking melodies… the music is a distinct development Spanish styles, almost larger than life as it responds to works that carry a powerful feeling for place as well as the tragic emotions of failed love. The singers, deftly accompanied by Carmen Piazzini and warmly recorded, delivery with refinement and passion.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2006 *****

Guastavino: Argentinian Melodies
Guastavino is one of Argentina’s major composers. He created an attractive national music using folk elements and a language firmly rooted in Romanticism. This collection includes his Clarinet Sonata, piano solos, as well as transcriptions of some of the maestro’s loveliest songs for clarinet. Héau is an important figure in the French clarinet school, performing as a soloist as well as giving master classes.
