Bonus track: recording back stage.

Fans of the Argentinian tenor will welcome him in this return to the recording studio, in splendid voice, for a further operatic recital... All the items are new to Cura’s recorded repertoire, and they suit him very well. ... Outstanding tenor voices of Cura’s quality are rare...Cura delivers the Corsaro aria with powerful energy and the Luisa Miller ‘Quando le sere al placido’ with good sense of line and moving expression. The L’Africaine and Gioconda solos too go extremely well —they really suit the tenor’s full-hearted vocal approach...
— Opera Now
As a heroic tenor he is now unrivalled, his perform- ance is musical and intelligent.
