Sarah Willis - Mozart y Mambo: La Bella Cubana - MusicWeb International

I can recommend this disc without hesitation, in part because I think it will cheer any listener up – I challenge anyone to get to the end without a smile on their face.

This is an immensely entertaining listen; don’t be misled, the standard of playing is very high, and the two Mozart works receive excellent performances.

Guantanamera brings the whole thing to a riotous conclusion – everyone’s having a huge party! Someone needs to write a follow-up arrangement with the words ‘One Sarah Willis, there’s only One Sarah Willis’.
