Delightful songs, beautifully performed by Désirée Halac.

Argentinian-born Désirée Halac presents a beautifully performed recital of songs by Carlos Guastavino. The obituary written for The Guardian called Guastavino the most quietly distinctive voice in 20th century Argentinian music. His distillation of local folk elements into an avowedly romantic-nationalist idiom was unique and markedly different from his colleagues. Guastavino wrote some 300 works, more than half of them the delightful songs, often winsome or tinged with sadness, on which his reputation rests.

Review:
"Halac sounds at home in this music and never tries to overplay its fragile charms. ...This is a lovely recital and I hope it makes both the music of Carlos Guastavino and the voice of Desirée Halac better known." (MusicWeb)

"Guastavino surely deserves greater recognition in North America. His easily accessible music bridges the gap between the...populism of Astor Piazzolla and the austere academicism of Alberto Ginastera. ...Ms. Halac...is so assured, so comfortable in her delivery...that one wonders why we have never heard her on record before." (American Record Guide)
