Notes and Editorial Reviews

Deutsche Grammophon brings to the table in a luxury edition a new recording of El dúo de La Africana, a work close to the heart of género chico [a form of zarzuela]... The cast is led by the brilliant Luis Álvarez, with the workmanlike María Rodriguez and Guillermo Orozco in support... [The 2nd] disc includes as appendices the "auditions" that impresario Cherubini granted to four outstanding artists in the New Year's Eve performance. Including the dialogue is something relatively novel in zarzuela recordings... [It] is accompanied by a bilingual Spanish/English booklet containing besides the plot synopsis and complete libretto an interesting essay on this zarzuela by Nuria Blanco Read more Álvarez, a specialist on Manuel Fernández Caballero's music.
