Omaramor (1991): Reviews
   [Notes] · [Reviews]
A sense of musical playfulness dominates in Golijov's Omaramor, a Gardel-inspired fantasia.


...'Omaramor' is a kind of quest piece (the solo cello wanders toward some tantalizingly withheld realization), the near-statement, the composer tells us, of a song made famous by the Argentine tango specialist Carlos Gandel. Michal Schmidt's virtuoso playing also yielded up a sense of the piece's subtly directed shapeliness.

—Richard Buell, The Boston Globe
