Notes & Reviews:

Los Pájaros Perdidos ('the lost birds'), the group has delved deep into the Latin American tradition, tracing its roots all the way back to African rhythms and European baroque structures before moving through Spain to current South American countries such as Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Venezuela. The pieces on the album cover a broad spectrum, from the sensual bolero 'Besame Mucho' (made famous by the late, great Cesaria Evora) to the lively 'Pájarillo Verde,' which will be familiar to fans of the Buena Vista Social Club. Tangos, fandangos and more round out this brightly-colored, rhythmically-vibrant recording. Along with the virtuosic instrumentalists of the group, the album a variety of vocalists including French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky (fresh off his critically-acclaimed US tour with Apollo's\ Fire), Chilean-Swedish mezzo Luciana Mancini, Neapolitan-trained ballet dancer-turned-singer Vincenzo Capezzuto and many others. The end result is a joyous celebration of the spirit and of South American music, sure to please fans of Classical, Latin and World music alike.

"This may be a crossover disc, but it offers a fascinating fusion of early European and Latin American music, in what Pluhar, its director-theorbist, calls “South America’s living baroque”...If Philippe Jaroussky sounds out of place, the earthy, sensual vocalists Lucilla Galeazzi and Luciana Mancini are the real deal." -The Sunday Times

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
This is an ensemble that clearly delights in making music. The singers and instrumentalists turn in vivid performances, but special recognition goes to Doron Sherwin who offers what must be the most spectacular virtuoso playing of the baroque cornetto (or zink) ever recorded. Several South American guest artists join the ensemble: Chilean charangist Raul Orellana, Paraguayan harpist Lincoln Almada, and Argentinean guitarist Quito Gato. The performances are wonderfully engaging, and the recorded sound is state of the art.
