Yo soy así, Tita de Buenos Aires

Rosetta Records presents “Yo soy así, Tita de Buenos Aires” by composer Osvaldo Montes

Osvaldo Montes approaches to “Yo soy así, Tita de Buenos Aires” from three complementary fronts. The first one is devoted to working alongside Mercedes Funes, an actress without musical training who ared to get wholeheartedly under Merello’s skin, including performing her immortal songs.
She is, without a doubt, the film’s soul, astonishing in her bravery and freshness, and helped by the composer’s complicity and unwavering dedication. His second task was to put into context the movie’s times through a series of narrative themes, composed by himself, where he dares to write foxtrots, tangos, waltzes and any sort of musical element useful to set the stage.
This second part includes a revisited version of the classic theme Volver, performed emotionally by Funes and Leonardo Pastore, in their respective roles as Tita and Carlos Gardel. It is a beautiful film climax here Morello sings to an audience formed by all the already gone people who were important in her life.
However, Montes doesn’t resist some experimentation, and for the end credits he weaves a version of They say about me, re-titled as Remix, where he uses electronic elements in an original attempt to update a song which was already a reference.
There is still a third front, the score, which Montes does not forget during recording, divided between Buenos Aires and Madrid.
It’s worth to mention pieces as Revolution ’55, on piano and bandoneon, or Potpourri Tita, which begins with a beautiful clarinet solo.
The strings are also used in Ni siquiera un hijo, where the heroine evokes her sacrifices in life, especially the fact of not being a mother as the price to pay for a life of success.
This is something also addressed from a melancholic point of view through piano and strings in an exquisite, delicate theme, Tita, despierta.
A golden touch for Osvaldo Montes’ career, whose work here provides a show of respect for one of his country’s most charismatic performers and, at the same time, reminds us of his unconditional nature as a film composer.
A real luxury.
