TSH 1548: FALLA AND THE THEATER

In 1904, Carlos Fernandez Shaw introduced Manuel de Falla to "The Three-cornered Hat," Pedro Antonio de Alarcón’s satire of village life in Andalucía, written in 1874. It’s best known by Manuel de Falla’s music for the ballet of 1919. Falla’s original plan for the novel was to produce it as a pantomime-farce. Joaquín Turina conducted the premiere of "The Magistrate and the Miller’s Wife" on April 7, 1917. We'll hear the complete work, along with selections from "El Amor Brujo."
