The Album

This gorgeous collection of Spanish songs by three of Spain's greatest composers - Enrique Granados (1867-1916), Manuel de Falla (1876-1946), and Joaquin Turina (1882-1949) - sets a new standard of how Spanish art songs should be performed. There's delicious piano playing and deeply involved singing, slow with heavy rubato, almost improvisational. Talamantes has the perfect voice for this recital: intelligent, well-modulated, and sensitive to all the emotions in a program of highly nuanced songs.
