Overview

It was in April 2005 that Katia and Marielle Labèque first began courting the famous flamenco cantaora Mayte Martín with the intent of collaborating on a project featuring Spanish music. Martín was delighted at the prospect, and so it began. With texts from the immortal Spanish poet Frederico García Lorca, supported by the musical arrangements of Joan Albert Amargós, De Fuego y de Agua is a fascinating blend of old and new, classical and world, passion and serenity. The album's fourteen tracks range from traditional flamenco songs to re-workings of music by Rodrigo, de Falla and Granados, all with the intent of respectfully framing and enhancing the powerful words of García Lorca. Also featured are three of Martín's own original compositions, originally written in classical arrangements. The artists' overarching desire is that that upon hearing this extraordinary disc, the listener will be swept away by the love and excitement of those who nurtured the project. From the Label
