Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Beatlerianas features seven classic Lennon & McCartney songs, arranged by Cuban composer Leo Brouwer for guitar and string quartet. Following their 2010 Latin Grammy®-winning ZOHO release of Brouwer s string quartets, the Havana String Quartet now pairs with Brazilian guitarist Carlos Barbosa-Lima in a guitar and strings recital that also includes the premiere recording of Brouwer s String Quartet No. 5.

Review

This Grammy®-winning album should undoubtedly put Cuba on the classical music map more firmly, with excellent performances from the Havana String Quartet showcasing composer Leo Brouwer s music. --All Music Guide (for ZMR 201108)

Format: Audio CD
Beatlerianas is destined to become a classic recording of the guitar repertoire. It brings together the masterful nuances of virtuoso guitarist Carlos Barbosa-Lima with a diverse set of works by the indisputable greatest living composer for the instrument, Leo Brouwer.

Barbosa-Lima performs 7 Beatles classics and a Quintet by Brouwer with the composer's own genius creation, The Havana String Quartet. The Beatles settings bring new life to these timeless standards, and Barbosa-Lima's diverse timbral pallet serves him well against this brilliant, lush-sounding quartet (who are also simply incredible on Brouwer's String Quartet #5 on this disc). These Beatles settings were previously recorded by Barbosa-Lima in 1997 with a string orchestra, and this quintet setting is simply more appropriate for the more intimate nature of the classical guitar. The Quintet for Guitar and String Quartet is a masterful work by a teenage (!) Leo Brouwer, as are the guitar duets presented here, the Milhaud-inspired Micropiezas. Master guitarist Larry Del Casale joins Barbosa-Lima on 5 of Brouwer's Micropiezas. What is most striking about these performance of the duets is that they take a slower tempo than most, and the harmonies and intervals seem to finally come alive! Barbosa-Lima also presents two enchanting works written relatively recently by Brouwer in 2007, as well as the worthy classic Zapateo of 1973.

This CD is well worth repeated listening, as it is both "easy on the ears"(mostly) and the type of work which will exhibit new delights to the listener upon each listening. BRAVISSIMO!

Cuban guitarist and composer Leo Brouwer has done a terrific job of writing a series of brief Fantasies for guitar and string quartet: seven movements that elaborate on the songs Eleanor Rigby; Here, There and Everywhere; She's Leaving Home; Ticket to Ride; Yesterday; Got to Get You into My Life; and Penny Lane. Each song in Beatlerianas (rev. 2012) is treated with utmost respect, giving each an inventive and delightful variation + embellishment that IMO does John Lennon and Paul McCartney full justice. The balance of the album is filled out with other compositions from Brouwer, including his early (1957) Quintet for Guitar and Strings and a recent work, his String Quartet No. 5 (2011). The featured guitarist throughout is Carlos Barbosa-Lima, along with the Havana String Quartet. Beautiful performances captured in excellent stereo sound!

I saw this Cd had Beatle songs and was recommended by Jazziz mag. There are just a few Beatle interpretations and the rest is a bunch phlegmatic gyrations. I fully expected to love this CD but I was really disappointed. I'm sure they are all very accomplished musicians but this just did not appeal to me.
