Antonio Lysy - Antonio Lysy at The Broad: Music from Argentina - The Absolute Sound
31 July 2013The Absolute Sound
This stunning album by Yarlung Records gathers five works for cello and piano by three Argentinian composers. Included are Alberto Ginastera's earthy, rhapsodic Second Pampeana and his elegiac, nocturnal Triste, along with Lalo Schifrin's moody sumptuous Pampas and two urbane tango-fantasies by Astor Piazzola (these last two adding a bassist to make a dark-hued trio). Cellist Antonio Lysy and pianist Bryan Pezzone play gorgeously and are gorgeously recorded, the sound immaculately clear and immediate, rich in tonal splendor, and revealing of the venue (Santa Monica's The Broad Stage). The deeply resonant cello pizzicatos at the end of Schifrin's Pampas ring off into air-filled space like starlight into infinity.
