El señor Joaquín (Caballero)

Alborada y balada "Noche pura y serena"
Montserrat Caballé. Orquesta Sinfónica de Barcelona, Eugenio M. Marco

Decca SXL-R 6792 [LP, nla]

Gran Orquesta Sinfónica, c. Ataulfo Argenta

London TW 91001 [LP, nla]

Caballero's once-popular sainete has not been fortunate on CD, and is currently unrepresented in the catalogue. There must be hope that Caballe's second LP of Zarzuela romances, made for Decca and including this superb example of her art, will be transferred in its entirety to CD. The Argenta Preludes and Intermezzos LP for Columbia is similarly more likely than most to make a reappearance in some form.
