As cloud for this post, I have chosen the formal Japanese violist Ikuko Kawai version of “El Choclo” (Kiss Of Fire). Ikuko is born in 1968 and performed in New York at her first Carnegie Hall concert at Zankel Hall in 2008. She has performed internationally, including invitational appearances with the Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra. “El Choclo” (Spanish: meaning “The Corn Cob”) is a popular song written by Ángel Villoldo, an Argentine musician, but was introduced as “Kiss of Fire” by Ray Conniff with his orchestra and chorus for the album “Rhapsody in Love” (1962).
