“The best vocal performances came from Ailyn Pérez, who showed a terrific feel for a selection of Spanish songs by Fernando Obradors. The Mozartean clarity of her voice at first seemed an unusual fit for this repertoire, but she conveyed sultry charm with her free phrasing and smallish but smoky chest voice. The third of this set, “Del cabello mas sutil,” has a winding, romantic melody that could easily be mistaken for Puccini, and Pérez sang it in that spirit, giving a spacious, dreaming interpretation. She showed flamenco flair in the traditional song “El vito,” singing with infectious enthusiasm while Noda nearly played himself off the bench with his athletic, fiery accompaniment.”
