This ultra-conservative Catalan sarsuela from the 1960's set in the Napoleanic Wars is a curious throwback, "Rataplan" duet and all, to a simple, populist 19th century style. Agustí Cohí Grau is a beloved pillar of Barcelona's musical community, and the recording is perhaps more a gracious tribute to his influence than a testament to any enduring interest in the work itself, good though the performance is.
