Manuel de Falla
The 1915 version of "El Amor Brujo" is a stage work with sung and spoken parts, numerous dances and much more music than usual in a "zarzuela" of the "minor" variety (género chico). Recorded with the unforgettable voice of a genuine flamenco cantaora, this CD made a lasting impact on the work's discography on it's first release in 1991. An absolute must!
