Notes and Editorial Reviews

Roberto Alagna is a peerless communicator. No other tenor of our time radiates joy like his when he lifts his voice above an orchestra. His sensual tenor thrills whether deployed in opera or pop. Having some Spanish ancestry, he sings Pasión's music with total identification.

Cuban boleros and Argentinean tangos constitute the core of Pasión's program. Yvan Cassar's ingenious and felicitous arrangements preserve and emphasize every song's musical fingerprint.
