Notes and Editorial Reviews

...DG...should be heartily congratulated for employing such a strong roster of singers and the highest editorial and recording standards. ... de rigeur for collectors.

-- Christopher Webber, www.zarzuela.net

-------------

[El bateo] is amongst [Chueca's] most endearing and inexhaustible. The new DG features a top quality cast, with Bayo and Lanza on notably good form, and given the excellent documentation, clear recording and complete texts in Spanish and English it becomes a clear first choice...

 F. Chueca: La Gran Via and El Bateo November 24, 2012 By Peter Barlow (Pawcatuck, CT) See All My Reviews "This is one of the best zarzuela CDs I've heard. Zarzuelas are Spanish operettas but not widely known outside of Spain. If you like Offenbach, Strauss, Lehar, and Smetana you will love this. Everything here is perfect - the music, the performances, and the recording. And Maria Bayo is always wonderful. My only criticism is that the cover design of the CD and booklet is not very interesting and the printing on the cover is barely legible. But don't let that keep you from this marvelous music."
