To our NativeDSD family,
After Antonio Lysy won Yarlung’s first GRAMMY® Award for Music from Argentina and Te Amo, Argentina (both available on NativeDSD) we have looked forward to collaborating again, especially to include a Swiss recording of the Kodaly Duo with Antonio’s father the eminent Argentine violinist Alberto Lysy. Kudos and thanks to Claude Cellier at Merging Technologies, our executive producer who made this DSD release possible. Legend has it Claude dances tangos in the middle of the night when he’s creating new designs for Merging Technologies equipment. Go Claude!
Our new album, South America, includes this famous duo. It celebrates South American composers and music on several fronts. We commissioned Coco Trivisonno, one of the last living members of Piazzolla’s ensemble, to arrange Carlos Gardel songs for bandoneon and cello. Marcia Dickstein Vogler joins us on harp, and Anastasia Petanova plays flute.
This recording comes in both Stereo and Surround Sound up to the DSD 256 bit rate it was recorded in, thanks to skillful mastering by Tom Caulfield. Arian Jansen and I recorded the album together in Cammilleri Hall last year.
Antonio Lysy, Alberto Lysy
|Qualities:||DSD 64fs, 256fs, 128fs|
I love this album. With tango milongas taking place all over the world, the timing of South America seems fortunate. Luxuriate also in the Casals and Bach/Villa Lobos cello choirs, performed all by Antonio Lysy himself in the glorious acoustics of Cammilleri Hall at The Brain and Creativity Institute.
Speaking of Cammilleri Hall, mark your calendars for April 25th for any of you in Los Angeles next month. Yuko Mabuchi Trio and Yarlung’s trumpet icon JJ Kirkpatrick return for a tribute concert and recording celebrating Miles Davis. To join the concert invitation list, please sign up on the bright blue subscribe button at the bottom of the Yarlung Records website: www.yarlungrecords.com. Mark your calendars!
