Track 7Lúa DescoloridaDawn Upshaw, Soprano; Gilbert Kalish, piano

...At its heart comes this hauntingly beautiful song, written by the Argentinian-born Osvaldo Golijov for Upshaw and Kalish, in the gallego language (used by some three million people in Galicia). As Upshaw herself commented to me: 'It's the saddest C major song I know'.
