The spectacular pianist Rosa Antonelli continues her exploration of music from Latin America.

Argentinian pianist Rosa Antonelli is one of today's leading performers and a champion of Latin-American and Spanish music. She has toured extensively, with more than 1,000 concerts in Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America and she is dedicated to performing and recording the works of these composers for audiences all over the world. This recording is a rich and varied sampling of this music, bringing together standard repertoire works with a few less familiar gems. While composers from Brazil, Spain, Mexico and Cuba are represented, Ms. Antonelli focuses in particular on the music from her homeland with a rich array of compositions by Astor Piazzolla, Luis Gianneo and Alberto Williams.

Review:
“A beguiling CD…the sort of music that makes one long for a warm summer day and a cold drink to enhance the enjoyment. Rosa Antonelli, long a specialist in and advocate for lesser-known Spanish and Latin-American repertoire, has here assembled a dessert cart full of delicious and tempting treats…Dare I use the dangerous word “definitive” to describe Ms. Antonelli’s innate understanding of this style and these composers? I fear I must, and I’m confident that she will con-tinue to unearth and program the best of this unique culture and its music.” (New York Concert Review)

“The warmth of this album’s title is matched by piano music that has a beguiling al-lure….Antonelli provides an ideal entrée for newcomers, and artistic flair for anyone with a long-abiding love of these pieces. “ (Fanfare)

“Antonelli’s phrasing and voicing are magical. ….this is highly recommended.” (American Record Guide)
