Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Although the post-Three Tenors generation has still to produce a universally adulated figure able to fill the football stadiums of the world, the claims of José Cura are quite high. His is a strong baritonal tenor – nearer to Domingo than to Pavarotti, therefore – and it is the sort of tenor voice people like to hear, ringing, vibrant and reliable, right up to a high-quality top C. Moreover he phrases musically and naturally. Hear him in the Canción a la Bandera which opens and closes this programme and his qualities are evident. He also arouses our curiosity about the opera itself. Hector Panizza is that same Ettore Panizza remembered as a conductor for his fiery interpretations of Italian operas at the Metropolitan in the 1930s, some of Read more which have been transferred to CD."
