"The focus and atmosphere of the orchestral playing sets its tone from the sombre beginning in a resonant, luminous soundscape. Ana Maria Sanchez is a vivid, emotional and touching heroine, dramatic where los Angeles was vivacious. As that rare bird, a tenor villain, Vicente Ombuena delivers fluent, ardent tone, suave enough to be properly unbelievable."
In this recording, both leads are sung beautifully and Ana Maria Sanchez is slowly getting the recognition she deserves outside Spain. With a great choral performance and intelligent orchestral playing, this beautifully recorded disc is worthy addition to the NAXOS catalog - and any opera lover's collection.
