SPAIN'S BEST-LOVED SONGS

One of Spain’s musical glories is her wealth of songs -- from every region and every era, loved and kept alive through the ages through transcriptions and arrangements. We’ll hear Manuel Valls’ transcription of Sephardic songs, a cello and piano version of Manuel de Falla’s Popular Spanish Songs, and José Luis Greco’s work for voice and string quartet, inspired by songs collected by Federico García Lorca.
