Reviews

'Full of rare delights … this well-recorded disc is highly recommendable' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Fink is one of the best singers I’ve encountered in some time, and she goes a long way to making this recording the most enjoyable anthology of Spanish songs I’ve heard' (American Record Guide)

'Recommended with enthusiasm' (International Record Review)

'A strong case for the inclusion of at least some Spanish Song into mainstream repertoire … Vignoles’s accompaniment is beautifully defined throughout; the perfect foil to Fink’s delicately nuanced, smooth and increasingly sensual singing' (The Independent on Sunday)

'One of the loveliest mezzos of our time' (The Sunday Times)

'Enthusiasts for song recitals should certainly investigate this disc, which offers one beautiful song after the other, running the gamut from elegant art songs to simple, folk-like tunes' (Fanfare, USA)

'The performances are excellent' (Turok’s Choice)

'A delightful recital' (ClassicsToday.com)

'On sent qu’elle connaît parfaitement ce répertoire et cette langue' (Répertoire, France)
Canción al arbol del olvido is a characteristically lean-textured song, underpinned by a hypnotically repetitive rhythm in the piano part. Its poet, Francisco Silva y Valdes, was clearly fond of trees—he also provided the text for the best-known song of Carlos Guastavino, La rosa y el sauce.

Canción al árbol del olvido es canción con una textura característicamente nutrida, reforzada por un ritmo hipnóticamente repetitivo al piano. A su poeta, Francisco Silva y Valdés, obviamente le gustaban los árboles: también proporcionó el texto de la canción más conocida de Carlos Guastavino, La rosa y el sauce.
