Among Spaniards there is no greater composer than Manuel de Falla — the tang of the country, the swirl of its landscape, the passion of its people are proudly stamped on every note he wrote. Goyescas, written in 1915 by the Spanish composer Enrique Granados, was the first opera performed in Spanish at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City at its premier in January 1916. The Intermezzo from the opera, inspired by the paintings of Francisco Goya, became a popular independent concert piece. Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz composed the Iberia suite for piano between 1905 and 1909. It was his best-known work and considered his masterpiece.
The orchestra brilliantly captures the sultry, sassy flair of El amor brujo. Together with soprano Leontyne Price -- whose penetrating, throaty sound is ideally suited for this work -- Reiner and the CSO deliver a performance that draws listeners in from the beginning and leaves them wanting more by the end...this album is sure to please and is deserving of a home in virtually any collection.
