Manuel De Falla: Siete Canciones populares españolas / Harpsichord Concerto / El gran teatro del mundo

Following in the footsteps of his teacher Felipe Pedrell, Manuel de Falla chose to set his music within the twin Spanish traditions of art and folk music. If the mark the culmination of his work on folksong, the Harpsichord Concerto shows a fairly avant-garde concern with timbre. Finally, is directly based on pieces included by Pedrell in his , an extensive anthology of Spanish music.
