Cut at Emil Berliner Studio & Pressed at Pallas in Germany
Argentine pianist, composer and music director, Ariel Ramirez is universally regarded as a 'chief exponent of Argentine folk music' and noted for his iconic musical compositions. He is primarily known for his compositional work Misa Criolla. Spanish tenor Jose Carreras's 1987 Philips recording of the Argentine folk mass piece conducted by its composer brought the work to a worldwide audience. Like the Misa Criolla, Ramírez composed Navidad Nuestra (Our Nativity), also included here, in 1964.
Ariel Ramirez was born in Santa Fe, Argentina. He is one of the significant popular composers of our time. He gained this reputation in 1964 when he conducted and recorded Misa Criolla. The record was a huge worldwide success. The piece was published the following year in Buenos Aires, but the first public performance only took place on March 12, 1967 at the Rheinhalle in Dusseldorf.
Jose Carreras occupies a privileged position in the music world. Born in Barcelona, he studied music in his hometown and in 1970 he started his professional career in the Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona with Nabucco and Lucrezia Borgia. His meteoric musical career resulted in early debuts at the world's most prestigious opera theatres and festivals and has collaborated with the most renowned orchestra conductors and pre-eminent stage directors. His extensive discography includes over 150 recordings, notably 50 complete operas, oratories, popular and classical recitals.
