Faustino Arregui sings Luisa Fernanda: Aria
In RA Format

Faustino Arregui had the necessary vocal means to be an operatic tenor but he is remembered today for his dedication to the "zarzuela" genre. Among the first performances, he sang in were Luisa Fernanda (Teatro Calderon, 1932) and La Tabernera del Puerto (Teatro Tivoli, 1936). He was a singer with an accurate instinct, he wisely alternated impetuous accents with serene phrases.

I would like to thank Vladimir Efimenko for the recording, and notes.
