Following the huge success of her eponymous first disc with the Orchestre Métropolitain — which won a Félix at the ADISQ 2011 — Marie-Josée Lord now presents Yo soy Maria, an extraordinary musical journey from the sidewalks of Buenos Aires (Astor Piazzolla), through the gardens of Aranjuez in Spain (Joaquín Rodrigo), and on to the Avenidas of Portugal. Accompanied by an ensemble of ten musicians, and VivaVoce Vocal Ensemble, Marie-Josée Lord sings some of the most beautiful songs in the Latin repertoire: Bésame mucho, Granada, and La flor de la canela. She also shows the depth of her range with more lyrical pieces, such as the Kyrie of Ariel Ramirez’s Misa criolla and Bacchianas Brasileiras no 5 by Villa-Lobos, in original arrangements by Simon Leclerc, also the musical director of this recording project.
