Women are at the heart of this disc: warm-hearted South American mothers, women on the town, little girls hanging scared on their mothers’ coat-tails, blondes kissing fruitsellers in the Buenos Aires rain …

The disc brings together two areas of repertoire which Mr McFall’s Chamber have often combined in performance – Valentina Montoya Martínez’s songs of life as a Chilean exile, and the music of the tango nuevo, including songs and instrumental interludes from Ástor Piazzolla’s ‘operita’ María de Buenos Aires, where the character of María represents the tango itself.

'Mr McFall's Chamber yet again find themselves triumphantly defining the innovative edge of the Scottish scene' - Scotsman
