Martis take on Massenet
Donald L. Kass | Queens, NY USA | 05/02/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This seems to have been made in 2002 when Madre was 69 and Hija was
30. I expected disaster but it is an important Massenet score and
Mamma still can float the pianissimos. Also it is performed in a
beautiful church --some people found the camera work too flighty--
and I can see their point. Orchestra, conductor and other soloists
are perfectly adequate -- I doubt Hija will ever have as beautiful
a voice as Madre but at least it is firm --also it is obviously
smaller than Madre's. We have to be thankful to the Martis for
letting us hear this fascinating score where Massenet seems to
be finding himself between Le Roi de Lahore and Herodiade.
