There's no doubting the enthusiasm of the performers or the frequent brilliance of the playing. The sound, dominated by guitars, sackbut and an almost guttural low flute can in itself be attractive, above all in Cantemir's Bestengiar, new to me and utterly beguiling. Solinís himself is a real virtuoso, and Pérez deliver the vocals with a sexy, arthy tone and trememdnous flamboyance. Gramophone
Following the album 'Euskal Antiqua', this new release by Enrike Solinis in the series Alia Vox Diversa offers new insight on the Spanish traditional music through a masterpiece by Manuel de Falla: The Enchanted Love (El Amor Brujo). In this ballet, Spanish tradition and classical music are intimately linked and Solinis’ new approach - on baroque instruments - makes the essence of De Falla’s music perfectly audible.
In addition to De Falla’s work, the Euskal Barrokensemble performs other pieces inspired by fertile encounters between popular and classical music. This sheds new light on well known masterpieces like the famous 'Concerto de Aranjuez' by Rodrigo or Scarlatti's Sonatas.
