Exclusive Live Stream Performance of “Serenata Latina” on July 16!
On July 16, Rolando joins harpist Xavier de Maistre for an exclusive live stream performance of Serenata Latina, available on Deutsche Grammophon Stage. Performed at the beautiful Théâtre des Bouffes Parisiens, the concert features a program of intimate arrangements of Latin American songs for tenor and harp.
Later, on October 2, the Serenata Latina project continues with the release of Rolando’s newest album with Deutsche Grammophon. “This album is a very special serenata,” says Rolando. “[It’s] a collection of beautiful traditional folk and art songs from Latin America, a collection of poetry and music of my big homeland.” The songs express themes of nature, love, mourning, joy, and more. The composers, which include Alberto Ginastera, Carlos Guastavino, and Antonio Estévez, “drank from the European tradition…but remain rooted in the soil of [the Latin American] rich, colorful, sometimes melancholic yet always resilient culture.”
The album will be availalbe for purchase through major retailers on October 2, 2020. In the meantime, enjoy the advance track, En estos dias by Silvio Rodriguez out now on all major streaming platforms.
