Notes and Editorial Reviews

After porpora's Orlando, Juan Bautista Otero and his musicians continue their exploration of the late 18th-century operatic repertoire. Here is 'Ifigénia', the masterpiece of Martin Y Soler, inexplicably left languishing in obscurity until now. A sparkling orchestra, vocal soloists fully equal to every virtuoso challenge - the extraordinary dramatic effects of the sacrifice is performed here with an expressive power that makes this recording a benchmark version.
