WHO BY FIRE, Giovanna Pessi, Susanna Wallumrod

GIOVANNA PESSI & SUSANNA WALLUMROD, If grief could wait, ECM, 2011.

**********
WHO BY FIRE

And who by fire, who by water,
Who in the sunshine, who in the night time,
Who by high ordeal, who by common trial,
Who in your merry merry month of may,
Who by very slow decay,
And who shall I say is calling?

And who in her lonely slip, who by barbiturate,
Who in these realms of love, who by something blunt,
And who by avalanche, who by powder,
Who for his greed, who for his hunger,
And who shall I say is calling?

And who by brave assent, who by accident,
Who in solitude, who in this mirror,
Who by his ladys command, who by his own hand,
Who in mortal chains, who in power,
And who shall I say is calling?    


GIOVANNA PESSI & SUSANNA WALLUMROD

Impresionante Cohen, impresionante la canción, magnífica la versión. A mi me gusta la que hizo en Londres en 2008 el toque mediterráneo del laud( o lo que sea) y el conjunto de los arreglos me parece perfecto

En uno de mis muchos alardes de torpeza olvidé los retornables y la música en el Instituto.

Ahora, solventada la dificultad, me encuentro con una música sanadora en la que voz, arpa y viola da gamba hacen más grandes a grandes como Purcell o Cohen. Una verdadera delicia. (por momentos la atmósfera me ha recordado a la banda sonora de Sacco e Vanzetti, por la hondura de sentimientos que transmite)

Por ahora debe esperar la "musica para los amigos" de Paquito (aka Big Francisco), aunque ya ha sonado una versión del Summertime Gershwiniano que promete.
Thanks a lot
