Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Oscar Macchioni, a native of Argentina, is a passionate performer of Latin American music. His diverse repertoire, taking in musical styles and composers of all periods, from Soler and Brahms to Piazzolla and Bolcom, is brought into high relief on Latin-American Duos, in partnership with violinist Mark Schuppener. Together, they offer a program of works that includes a trifecta of pieces by the great 20th c. Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla, two by the Mexican Manuel Ponce, as well as works by Guastavino, Floro M. Ugarte, and William Bolcom, elder statesman of American composers.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The program opens with Argentine Carlos Guastavino's (1912-2000) Rosita Iglesias. There is a certain resemblance at points between Ugarte's style and Astor Piazzolla's, his countryman. Perhaps this is the Argentine style. Floro Ugarte's (1884-1975) Violin Sonata of 1928 is more conservative in style. What William Bolcom's (b 1938) 'Graceful Ghost Rag' is doing in a collection of Latin-American music beats me. It is a charming work. Next to the piece by Guastavino, the best music here is the miniatures by Manual Ponce (1882-1948), 'Cancion de Otono' and 'Estrellita'. The works by Astor Piazzolla are brief and typical.

Mark Schuppener is an adequate violinist. Oscar Macchioni is a good pianist.
