Notes and Editorial Reviews
In her first complete departure from core repertoire, Elina Garanca releases Sol y Vida. A journey to the Southern hemisphere, from Spain to Italy and Latin America, the album features a selection of songs, canzone and tango pieces. Highlights include Piazolla’s “Yo soy Maria,” originally part of a tango operita and “Gracias a la vida.” Garanca is joined by Karel Mark Chichon and his Orquesta Filarmonica Gran Canaria as well as guitarist Jose Maria Gallardo del Rey.

REVIEW:

Everything here (not least the filmic arrangements) is overheated in the best sense. Her sheer joy in choosing and singing this repertoire is tangible. A holiday romance it may be, but enjoy it while it lasts.
