Performance:   Sonics:  
There isnt much Falla or even Spanish music available on sacd but this must be the best by a fair distance.It is a Spanish as you could get.Composer Orchestra ,Solo Artists and conducter.Even the title is in ints native tongue.Stunning recording captures the atmosphere brilliantly and I am reminded again of the discussion re authentic interpretations need to be by the natives of that composer country.This would be an ideal candidate to prove the case beyond doubt.Spanish rhythms and sounds correctly displayed...A very well filled disc and it would be difficult to find fault with anything.Except the very well filled booklet which gives great detail of the background to the music, includes the names of all the orchestra but gives little (zero) details of the main artists...Having a large and varied collection of Spanish music and spent enough time there I can say that just one play of this disc convinced me...5 star performance not 4..If only there was more like this.

Performance:   Sonics:
Very special master piece.
It seems to be a very chaotic peace of music during the first listening sessions. Once you start knowing this SA-CD you will discover the abondant details present and at the same time still be surpriced by its originality. The recording is good, very punchy and very clear with straight details.
