Notes & Reviews:

Composed as a sequel to 'Christopher Columbus', Leonardo Balada's 'The Death of Columbus' has been critically acclaimed as "uncommonly impressive and winning". From its spectacular opening scene depicting the triumphant return of Columbus to Barcelona from his discovery of the New World, to the tormented delirium of the great explorer's death-bed scene, 'The Death of Columbus' is an intensely moving opera, filled with lyrical melodies and imaginative orchestration. This is a landmark addition to Naxos' highly-praised series of Balada's music.

"When not compared to its extraordinary predecessor [Balada's opera Christobal Colon, available on NXS 8660237], this is undeniably an engaging piece, one that anyone who enjoyed the earlier opera will want to hear. The recording, made immediately after the 2005 premiere of the work, is a triumph for the many Carnegie Mellon University musicians involved. Naxos and university engineer Ricardo Schultz provide top-drawer sound for this complex score. Recommended." - Fanfare
