Notes & Reviews:
"El gato con botas was the first of [Montsalvatge]'s three operas; it is the well-known kid's story about the sly cat who makes deals with its master. The music has an instantly familiar ring to it and the forms--recitative and aria--keep it well in the tradition of the type of comic works that were being written around 1800 ... This performance is delightful, with Marisa Martin a cat to reckon with--not only cunning but alluring ... If you don't know the work of Montsalvatge, this might be a good place to start." -Bob Levine
A magical, mysterious opera in five scenes! The opera's libretto is signed by Néstor Luján, based on a fairy tale of Charles Perrault. The CD includes a multimedia bonus with interviews and images of the recording.
