Music Monday: Erwin Schrott Tackles a Latin Classic

Bass-baritone Erwin Schrott may have skyrocketed to fame as the title character in Don Giovanni, but his interpretations of classic Latin songs are also not to be missed. One of these interpretations is “El dia que me quieras,” a tango standard originally composed and performed by famous Argentinian singer, Carlos Gardel, for his film of the same name.
