This set was nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for "Best Opera Recording."
Although this recording of 'Mar������a de Buenos Aires' will probably be found in your store's opera section, it might be more at home elsewhere. Described as a "tango operita" by its creators, this work is more closely allied with cabaret and musical theater styles. Mar������a is the tango personified: born in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, she is drawn into the city's lowlife; after dying there, her shadow is condemned to roam the streets. The story is told in a series of flashbacks and vignettes--the Goblin narrates, and it is he who finally effects Mar������a's redemption by allowing her to bear a child, also named Mar������a.
Gidon Kremer and his Kremerata Musica play this music with an obvious devotion and an earthy elegance appropriate to the music. Argentinean singers Julia Zenko (Mar������a) and Jairo (all other vocal roles except the Goblin) sing and speak their roles with ease, giving no hint of the fact that they joined this production just a week before it began rehearsals. Librettist Horacio Ferrer rounds out the ensemble in the spoken role of the Goblin, beginning and ending the tale of Mar������a with a worldly, aged tone as well as participating in the drama in between.
