The Spanish Radio Orchestra and Choir has been very lucky of having such individuals writing their scores. With such positive factor at their side it is only natural that they reproduce these songs so beautifully and competently.

About this recording

Presentation

Falla writes this introduction in the score: “Remembering that Philip V and his wife Elizabeth Farnese lived in the Alhambra palace around 1730, as I composed this Psyché I imagined a little courtly concert which might have taken place in the Queen’s bedchamber, which, situated at the top of a high tower, looks out over a truly magnificent view.”
