Notes & Reviews:

Unique for her dramatic flair, expert musicality, and interpretive powers, soprano Patricia Petibon indulges in her love of Luso-Iberian music. From zarzuela to art song, folk song, the Aria Cantilena of Brazil's Villa-Lobos, and the traditional Afro-Brazilian Ogundé uareré, Patricia Petibon also samples the new. She includes the world-premiere recording of Nicolas Bacri's song cycle, which was written in dedication to her. Patricia Petibon adds spice by teaming up with flamenco musicians for one-of-a-kind performances of the zarzuela hit Adios, Granada and the folk tune El vito. Beloved favorites are not neglected: Petibon's take on La tarántula, Marinela, Canto negro, and La petenera sparkle with light and life.

"A remarkable achievement: a fan letter to Spanish music (not excluding South America or an excursion to Villa-Lobos's Brazil) including a new commission from Nicolas Bacri. It's carried out with aplomb...Petibon is especially effective in the zarzuela numbers...Throughout, Petibon's acting and character skills evidently lift each interpretation... Hugely recommended." -Gramophone

International Record Review
A more apt title is would be hard to imagine... This is in every respect a superlative disc and demonstrates yet again that in Patricia Petibon we have a singer with a real gift for vivid and colourful performances supported by an impeccable technique and real all-round artistry. This is not the best thing she has ever done, simply because just about everything she does is exceptional.

Gramophone Magazine
A remarkable achievement: a fan letter to Spanish music (not excluding South America or an excursion to Villa-Lobos's Brazil) including a new commission from Nicolas Bacri. It's carried out with aplomb... Petibon is especially effective in the zarzuela numbers... Throughout, Petibon's acting and character skills evidently lift each interpretation... Hugely recommended.

Classic FM Magazine
There's a pleasingly rich core to Petibon's voice besides the coloratura heights she's renowned for. She performs with total commitment and without fear and this injects everything she sings with tremendous character.
