0:00 - Ravel Pavane pour une infante défunte 3:21 - Falla El amor brujo
Spanish Passion >
Program Notes Archive >
Spanish flamenco royalty Marina Heredia lends her alluring voice to Falla's El amor brujo, which weaves the tale of two young Gypsy lovers who chase away an evil ghost with a fiery flamenco dance. Heredia's countryman, Pablo Heras-Casado, fittingly pairs this passionate piece with two colorful, nostalgic works by Ravel, a musical friend and colleague of Falla. Le tombeau de Couperin hearkens back to the grace and elegance of French baroque dance, while the Pavane pour une infante défunte evokes the court of a young Spanish princess.
