Notes & Reviews:

Argentinean tenor Jose Cura was one of the big success stories in the musical world with his acclaimed "Puccini Arias" disc. In "Anhelo", Cura is singer, actor, conductor and composer in a unique tribute to his Argentinean heritage.

Notes & Reviews:

Selections recorded at Maison de l'Orchestre National d'Il de France, Alfortville.

Personnel: José Cura (vocals); Ernesto Bitetti (guitar); Christophe Guiot, Klodiana Skenderi, Christopher Bruckert, David Naulin, France Dubois , Michele Deschamps, Marie-Paule Vieille, Arnaud Nuvolone, Véronique Marcel, Jeanne Lancien, Patrice Mondon, Eric Chouteau, Laurent Philipp, Yves Melon (violin); Noëlle Santos, Fabrice Leroux, Jonathan Naze, Françoise Gneri (viola); Jean-Philippe Audin, Philippe Nadal (cello); Raymond Guiot (flute); Héloïse Gaillard, Hugo Reyne (recorder); Richard Vieille, Yves Bruchon (clarinet); Christophe Grindel (oboe); Gilbert Audin (bassoon); Eduardo Delgado (piano); Phillippe Noharet (double bass).

Recording information: Maison De L'Orchestre National (12/16/1997-12/23/1997).

Jose Cura is unique among singers of international standing in that he composes, arranges and conducts, and was doing so long before his name became famous. ANHELO shows him assuming all these roles in a program of Argentine song which focuses on lyrics of nostalgia and longing. It is obviously an undertaking close to his heart, for it is carefully organized and rendered with great tenderness and passion.

Many of the composers represented are not well known outside Argentina, but that may change. The songs of Carlos Guastavino, of which there are eight here, possess a distinctive bittersweetness which is truly haunting. There is also one song by Argentina's best known avant-garde composer, Alberto Ginastera, as well as a piano arrangement of tango master Astor Piazzolla's "Adios Nonino." This is far from your usual superstar tenor's crossover project and is, in fact, a most valuable addition to the catalog.
