South America pays tribute to the historic and contemporary ingenuity of musicians and composers from South America, Astor Piazzolla, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Carlos Gardel, Antonio’s father the violinist Alberto Lysy, and new work by the Argentine bandoneon master Coco Trivisonno.

In South America, Antonio Lysy and Yarlung break new ground once again, using SonoruS Holographic Imaging technology to enable Antonio to play every part in a cello orchestra.

This recording includes harpist Marcia Dickstein Vogler in Villa-Lobos’s Black Swan for harp and cello, flautist Anastasia Petanova in Villa-Lobos’s Jet Whistle for flute and cello, and Coco Trivisonno in three of his arrangments of Volver, Divina and Yo Te Bendigo, songs immortalized by Carlos Gardel. Coco is one of the last living members of Astor Piazzolla’s intrepid ensemble. As standard in Yarlung albums, Antonio’s performances with Marcia, Anastasia and Coco are all single takes.

Along with pianist Martha Argerich, Antonio’s father the violinist Alberto Lysy remains one of South America’s most celebrated classical concert musicians. Alberto learned this work with the composer in advance of a performance with Gaspar Cassadó in 1958. Alberto's next performance of the Duo was with Jacqueline Du Pré. Later, Antonio and Alberto became major performers of the piece.
