Notes & Reviews:

The Guardian, 9th March 2016
The performances have real authority...The demanding part of Florinda, Rodrigo's lover, is taken by Virginia Tola, though she is even more impressive threading her silvery soprano through the textures of Milena...You hardly notice the joins, though, and in any case much of the music is such a treat that it doesn't matter at all.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2016
It's astonishing how fresh Domingo still sounds... all the more impressive, considering that Ginastera's score is comparable to Berg's Lulu both stylistically and in its extreme technical demands... [Virginia Tola] shows her emotional mettle in Milena... Ana Marfa Martfnez sings [popular Argentinian songs] with gusto and an appropriate feeling of bittersweet nostalgia.
