The Absolute Sound recognized
Music from Argentina
among the
40 Best Recordings of All Time
...Cellist Antonio Lysy and pianist Bryan Pezzone play gorgeously and are gorgeously recorded, the sound immaculately clear and immediate, rich in tonal splendor, and revealing of the venue (Santa Monica's The Broad Stage).  The deeply resonant cello pizzicatos at the end of Schifrin's Pampas ring off into air-filled space like starlight into infinity.
-- Mark Lehman, The Absolute Sound, 2013

Bravo Antonio and Capitol Ensemble! Your recording joins the TAS "Top 40" along with Kind of Blue, Somethin' Else, Ella and Louis, Rickie Lee Jones, Famous Blue Raincoat, and Only the Lonely.  You have given us an incredible gift.

Latin Grammy®Award
Yarlung Records congratulates Lalo Schifrin 
and Antonio Lysy on their GRAMMY for 
Antonio Lysy at The Broad: Music from Argentina.

GRAMMY® Award winning Yarlung Records brings fresh musicians to the classical music world using minimalist audiophile recording techniques to deliver sound as close to living performance as possible. Rather than using recording studios, engineer Bob Attiyeh produces these albums in concert halls famous for their acoustics, including Walt Disney Concert Hall and Ambassador Hall in Los Angeles. Yarlung uses both analog tape and high resolution digital media for CDs made with special alloys, high resolution digital downloads, and 180 Gram vinyl LPs, mastered by Steve Hoffman.

A tax-exempt 501(c)(3), Yarlung Artists raises money to support young musicians as they begin their international concert careers. Our board of directors, executive producers and special advisors help us record, market and distribute debut albums for select young concert artists to help them gain stature and visibility with their audiences, critics and peers.
  Yarlung Records takes its name from the Yarlung Valley in Central Tibet, where the royal houses buried Songtsen Gampo and Trisong Detsen (two of the great early Kings in the historical record) in the Tibetan "Valley of the Kings." Legends claim the Yarlung Valley as the magical birthplace of the Tibetan people and as a meeting place between heaven and earth. It is in this valley, at the site of  Yambulakhang Castle in our Yarlung Records logo, where Heaven and Earth touched in order to transform humanity.  What could be a better metaphor for the transformative power of great music?
