Format: Audio CD
Mayte Martin is an acclaimed flamenco singer in Spain, the Labeque sisters are classical pianists, the three have come together to create an album of unimaginable beauty.

To start off this is not a flamenco album, it's really a classical piano duet album with a flamenco singer. This sort of piano-flamenco singer duet is all the vogue at the moment... particularly with Latin Jazz pianists... and in my mind I have found these fusions less than convincing... I guess the reason why this album works is because unlike other albums where they have tried to fuse the genres and create a flamenco-jazz, flamenco-soul, etc mix in this album they are not doing this. Rather than fuse genres they are using a genre (classical piano) and having other genres influence it - whether the genre be flamenco, classical guitar, tango, bolero, etc.

The decision to influence rather than fuse makes the execution of this album superb. Mayte Martin has toned down her flamenco instincts to suit the different musical world she is inhabiting. The Labeque sisters have taken songs from various genres (genres with a classical European influenced tradition in general) and made them piano works in a classical mould. The mix is sublime.

I can't recommend this album enough...

Format: Audio CD
This is one of those unique pieces that would stand the test of time. The more you listen to it the more you like it. It is classical music with a touch of flamenco. The voice of Mayte Martin is outstanding and it is kind of solace for the soul. Her timing is impecable. Likewise, the two sisters playing the piano are also impecable. This is classical music for the modern age; music that young folks could sink their teeth into. This is one for the ages. Recommended to anyone who loves great music.

I am writing this review as I listen to the CD (which I received today). Words can't adequately describe the beautiful and gorgeous voice of Mayte Martin. The Labeque Sisters are caliber pianist that touch your soul. The combination leaves you in awe and wanting some more. Congratulations Mayte, Katia & Marielle Labeque for this wonderful CD. I hope you do a follow up, I'll be the first one to buy it, guaranteed!

Este es un disco muy difícil de conseguir, como casi toda la obra de las hermanas Labeque.
No siempre hay, no pude hacer que me lo enviaran a México asi que fue un problema conseguirlo, más de tres meses. Fue un regalo para mi esposa y ella quedó maravillada por la combinación tan afortunada de música para dos pianos y voz, voz de inspiración flamenca.
Las canciones tienen letras sencillas, de una gran belleza, de una aguda sensibilidad poética. La selección de piezas es muy notable, se nota que hay un gran trabajo de diseño y de planeación atrás de este disco. A diferencia de un flamenco tradicional (Camarón), de gente como Manzanita, se entiende claramente la letra. La voz y la pronunciación de Mayté Martín son muy interesantes. Si cada pieza es bella, agradable o hermosa, el conjunto es muy sólido, nunca se cae, nunca resulta aburrido, la calidad musical es sostenida.
La voz de los pianos es lo que, personalmente, más me asombra. Son dos pianos y no opacan la voz, lo que se debe lo mismo a las intérpretes que al ingeniero de sonido, y resulta un disco muy bien grabado. Muestra la flexibilidad y la capacidad interpretativa de las hermanas Labeque, que con los años me sigue maravillando. Lamento no tener un mejor equipo de sonido para poder apreciar los matices de la intepretación.
El resultado es muy bueno. No es flamenco. No es clásico.
