4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome program of romantic music from Argentina July 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I haven't heard much this year about the 2012 Centennial of Carlos Guastavino, who died in 2000. It's nice, then, to see his 10 Cantos Populares at the centre of this new disc of Piano Music of Argentina, from the Argentine-American pianist Mirian Conti.

Conti's 2010 Chopin Mazurkas recording, one of the first releases from the new Steinway & Sons label, was very well received. I know Conti best from her South American discs on Koch International & Troy, and it's nice to have her back with music from her homeland. That's especially the case because so many of the composers included on the disc will be new to most, because the pieces Conti has chosen are so full of character and so varied, and because they're all so beautifully played and recorded on an impressive Steinway piano.

Conti brings three generations of Argentine composers together with a nostalgia theme explained in a fascinating liner-notes essay. The music is informed by the dual folkloric traditions of Argentina, urban tangos and the dances of the gauchos, and coloured by the music of the French and Spanish modernists who had such an impact on South American composers from Villa-Lobos & Ginastera to Tom Jobim & Piazzolla. It's all very romantically sad, and often very simply beautiful. It's Guastavino's melodies, harmonies & subtle rhythms that stand out, but the whole package is charming, and definitely worth a listen!

This is a fantastic CD in which the Steinway piano is heard at its best. The artist is a fine ambassador of Argentinian music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartfelt, a true pleasure February 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD
The works vary in style and tone, Ms. Conti's piano playing is heartfelt, and the listening experience is a pleasure. The piano sound is gloriously rich and resonant, a single instrument practically duplicating a whole orchestra. The acoustic is just reverberant enough and the miking just close enough to produce a lifelike response with plenty of warmth and bite at the same time.
