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.
"...I'd have to say that the usual stumbling blocks have been sidestepped.
Great care has been taken to do the right things, starting with the way the
decision to remaster these RCAs was made." -Jonathan Valin, The Absolute

"These records are definitive." -Michael Fremer, analogplanet.com
"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." -Mike D. Brownell, allmusic.com
