Sings Gardel based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Yes, Alvarez is an opera singer. Not a tango one. He may have listened to Gardel and other tango singers and even tried to use some tango twists, but here you will find essentially an opera singer. Is that bad??? Not at all!!!! Why??? Because here you can at last disclose Gardel the singer and bring forward Gardel the composer. His musical writing is so melodic and passional that thinking his songs in Puccini-like terms is a very natural choice. And the arrangements are so colourfull, clearly far more ambitious than the original one Gardel intended. Did I mention the booklet is a piece of art in itself?? And that the selection of tangos is the ultimate one if you want a definitive single - cd portrait of THE tango - cancion composer???? What are you waiting for??? Grab this cd
