About Marcelo Alvarez Sings Gardel

Amazon.com This recording brings together Argentine tenor , who only recently became famous as an opera singer, and , Argentine creator and singer of tangos, who became a national hero and a legend. Fortunately, Gardel recorded many of his songs (including those on this disc) before his tragic early death in 1935. The arranger transforms the final song into a surprise duet by adding Gardel's recorded voice to Álvarez's. The popularity of these tangos is not surprising: Their melodies are beautiful, as simple and direct as their emotional appeal. The harmonies underline the changing moods, with verses alternating major and minor. Álvarez clearly has a natural affinity for this music. His voice is light but intense; as on his debut recording of operatic arias, Bel canto, Álvarez uses his voice well and varies it expressively, making the predominantly melancholy, yearning songs passionately full of lament, and suffusing the lively, cheerful dances with a smile. The strongly jazz-influenced arrangements use the instrumental combination for utmost variety. Each of the players--Argentine musicians to the manner born--gives a unique stylistic stamp to superbly imaginative improvisations. --Edith Eisler
