Erwin Schrott - Interview

The Uruguayan bass-baritone Erwin Schrott, accompanied by six musicians, invites us to enter the world of the tango and listen to popular melodies popular songs from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, and Cuba. This concert highlights his passion for the music of his Latin American origin. In 1998, the artist received the Audience and Jury prize at the famous Operalia contest, which was created by Placido Domingo. This marked the start of a heady ascent, opening the doors of the most renowned stages and concert halls in the world. He enters into the voice and physique of the roles he performs and excels in the work of Mozart, as well as in certain pieces by Verdi. As a child, on waking, he heard Carlos Gardel and Astor Piazzolla on the radio, and in the evening fell asleep to his mother’s voice singing the tango. All those who are eager to discover music from another world should prepare themselves to be entranced by Erwin Schrott and his musicians and experience live the emotions captured on their tango album, ROJOTANGO.
