/ Novoson Z-548
Torregrosa's most substantial score gets Rolls-Royce
treatment from an unmatchable cast and conductor. In the final scene
Rosado provides one of the most moving performances in the zarzuela
discography. This indispensible disc is coupled, conveniently, with its twin
sainete El santo de la Isidra.
The Novoson reissue is coupled, less logically, with
Chapí's El barquillero, in what is its
only official CD reissue.
