Manuel de Falla is renowned as the greatest Spanish composer of the early 20th century, whose genius rested in part on his ability to meld diverse stylistic, folk or literary influences into distinctive new musical languages, forging masterworks that would ultimately become cultural emblems of his homeland. Raymond Bisha presents a new release of a 2-work programme that embodies this principle of synthesis: Falla’s heartfelt representation of Gitano or Roma (the preferred term for people commonly referred to as ‘gypsy’) culture in the original 1915 version of El amor brujo (Love, the Magician), and his 1923 puppet opera based on scenes from Miguel de Cervantes’ classic Don Quixote, in El retablo de Maese Pedro (Master Peter’s Puppet Show).
