El tambor de Granaderos
Teresa Berganza, Toñy
Rosado, Carlos S. Luque. Coro Cantores de Madrid, Orquesta Sinfónica, c.
There are few more rousing openings than the first, famous
bars of Chapí's Preludio, and under Argenta's military
discipline the zest of this Napoleonic comedy is sustained through to the very
end. His crack support troops include Rosado, balancing fervour and
flirtaciousness to great effect in her Rataplán song. Coupled
with La alsaciana, this is a classic performance
which will give much pleasure.
