* Reviews to recital: "Canto a Hispanoamérica" @ Festival Musical de Santo Domingo 2015 • 6.3.2015 • Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Concierto en la capilla. El primer concierto del Festival fuera del Teatro Nacional, presentado en la Capilla de los Remedios de la Ciudad Colonial, estuvo a cargo de la joven soprano Nathalie Peña-Comas, acompañada al piano por Elioenai Medina. El concierto titulado "Canto a Hispanoamérica" estuvo conformado por canciones de arte de diferentes compositores: los españoles: Joaquín Rodrigo, Joaquín Turina, Federico Moreno Torroba, Federico Monpou, y José María Cano; los argentinos Osvaldo Golijov, y Carlos Guastavino, el venezolano Juan Bautista Plaza, el francés Léo Delibes, y el dominicano Julio Alberto Hernández.


En cada interpretación Nathalie mostró delicada musicalidad, estilo, excelente manejo de la voz y capacidad de expresión; el acompañamiento brindado por el pianista Elioenai Medina, fue determinante para el lucimiento de la cantante. El público que colmó el espacio de la pequeña capilla, disfrutó de un entrañable concierto, remanso de paz para el espíritu.
