Rolando Villazón & Xavier de Maistre.
An album with new, intimate arrangements; the cultural diversity where indigenous, European and African influences meet, Latin American countries pose one of the richest Lied repertoires. A variety of rhythm, melody and narrative form, from Mexican tenor Rolando Villazón, & French star harpist Xavier de Maistre. A sound collage, Serenata Latina’s tracks come to life in their sensual, emotional essence: longing, pain, melancholy, desire, loss lead this heartfelt project, alongside upbeat pieces.
