Notes & Reviews:

Cellist Josetxu Obregón and La Ritirata bring us up close to this noble instrument's role during the 18th c. with The Cello in Spain, their new Glossa CD. The selections made by the cellist, many recorded here for the first time, would have undoubtedly been heard in Spain during the infancy of the instrument and later, played by traveling virtuosi such as Luigi Boccherini or Domingo Porretti. Obregón's vivid advocacy also reaches through to the first native Spanish cello school with music from Pablo Vidal and José Zayas. This new disc may pave the way for a broader exploration of the cello in Spain.

MusicWeb International, 4th January 2016
Obreg=n is a musician of the curious kind who likes to explore new ground. This disc is of great importance as it is the first attempt to document a part of music history which is still largely in the dark ... Obreg=n is a brilliant performer ... Technically the playing is superb and Obreg=n and his colleagues play with aplomb in the extraverted pieces but also with refinement in the more intimate items.
