"It takes a Hispanic conductor and orchestra to show you how Carmen should be played.
Wow! The tempos and dynamics are super. The tender passages played like a latin lover (even though Bizet was French). The shmultz is there with tender love and care. The latin flavor is played throughout by the amazingly fine sounding City of Mexico Symhony Orchestra. Brian Culverhouse is one of the finest engineers in the business. Listen to this cd and know why. The fortes are bombastic! Enjoy!"
