Notes and Editorial Reviews

Manuel de Falla's El amor brujo was initially commissioned in 1914-15 as a gitanería (gypsy piece) by Pastora Imperio, a renowned flamenco gypsy dancer. It was scored for cantaora voice, actors and chamber orchestra. In later years, Falla revised the work for orchestra, including three short songs for mezzo-soprano. This recording of the original version, which features the great cantaora Ginesa Ortega, made a lasting impact on the work's discography upon its first release in 1991.
