Order CD

Highly attractive combining of folk-influenced pieces by composers from Spain –(Manuel de Falla, Enrique Granados, Xavier Montsalvatge) and Argentina (Alberto Ginastera, Carlos Gustavino), by the long-established duo of Kim Kashkashian and Robert Levin, whose last ECM disc, with the Brahms viola sonatas, won the Edison Award in 1999. Kashkashian has described the viola as the most ‘vocal’ of the string instruments, the one closest to the human voice. She seems indeed a singer as she makes of these different compositions an organic unity - an impression heightened by the dramaturgy of the production.
