SPECIAL FEATURE: Eclipse, a Song by Margarita Lecuona

So much beautiful music ends up in the cutting room floor whenever I assemble a music appreciation presentation. Here is a beautiful song by Cuban mezzo Margarita Lecuona composed in the early 20th century, and recorded by Bossa-Nova co-founder João Gilberto in 2000.

WATCH: A performance by the composer rescued from an old 75 rpm record.

LISTEN: Here’s Gilberto’s version from 2000.

LISTEN: Here’s Natalia Lafourcade’s version of the song, from 2018.
