“It is a program that I know very well and for which I have great affection. I am a great defender of the Spanish concert song, which unfortunately I think is missing, especially in men's performances, so the Córdoba concert is an excellent occasion to rescue and value this great repertoire ", points out the tenor.
Not in vain, some of the songs from the day's concert 3 March are included in the disc Routes, recorded by Pablo García-López with Aurelio Viribay at the piano in 2020.
