Notes and Editorial Reviews

Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Flórez sings from the heart on this glorious new album of irresistible popular songs from his native South America and Spain.
Symphonic orchestral arrangements, songs with traditional Mariachi band and intimate moments with solo guitar. This superb album also includes orchestral arrangements by Juan Diego Flórez himself (and he plays bongos on Fina estampa!)

"Juan Diego Flórez is known first as a Rossini tenor and then rather more broadly as a singer in the bel canto tradition. And that, of course, is rather different from Puccini and the verismo school where tenors sob and declaim and the music palpitates. In this recital Flórez, still a model of good vocal
Read more manners compared with most, comes nearer to satisfying the taste which up to now has admiringly acknowledged him but never quite taken him, palpitating, to the heart. About these songs it is tempting to be broad-minded, but they are really very third-rate...But still there is Flórez. His voice is splendidly clear-cut: it tells of youth and health, energy and enthusiasm. The magnificent high notes ring out to thrilling effect, exhibited with a freedom and panache which the bel canto tradition rarely encourages. They will probably recruit a whole battalion of new fans." - John Steane, The GRAMOPHONE
