Review:
"Monotony is avoided by the subtle drama that makes this music so attractive, irresistible...the subtle combination of melancholy, nostalgia, sexuality, and yes, esperanza, hope. ...it is all alluring and charming. Rosa Antonelli has the full measure of her program, which she dispatches with skill, sensuality and obvious affection." (Fanfare)

"The gentle melancholy of Carlos Guastavino, the delicate traceries and Satie-like minimalism of Alberto Williams, the charming tangos of Astor Piazzolla, the French-tinted effects of Floro Ugarte, the Albeniz-like Spanish riffs of Julian Guirre, and the luxurious lyricism of Angel Lasala are all evoked with the soulful pianism of Rosa Antonelli...Altogether, this is a splendid introduction to Argentinian piano music." (American Record Guide)

"One of the many things I've grown to love about Rosa Antonelli's performances of Argentinean piano music is the warmth of her expression, never forced but ever present. This is playing from the heart, always responsive to the melodic charms of these, in some cases, deceptively simple compositions. ...This is a richly rewarding recital that conveys new depths with each hearing. Recommended." (Fanfare)
