Notes to the program


The ballet "El Amor Brujo" was composed by Manuel de Falla between November of 1914 i April 1915. Moreno Ballesteros will direct the premiere in Madrid on 15 d'April 1915. Falla later revised the work quite a bit. The first concert presentation of the final version was performed on 28 by marc de 1916 by the Madrid Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by Bartolomé Pérez-Casas.

As the work was initially, it was a failure, some time later the composer rewrote it, he combined his two scenes into one, he expanded his chamber ensemble to an orchestra and removed several songs and recitations. The new version was heard in concert on 1916, but had to wait for a stage production until 1925, when she was performed in Paris by the famous dancer Argentina. Falla extracted an orchestral suite from the ballet omitting the vocal numbers.

Through his songs and folk dances, "Wizard love" reflects the mysticism of gypsy culture. Particularly Spanish is the way in which the "brute forces of an incorrigible nature", like the biographer of Falla, Burnett James, explains the symbolism of the Specter, they are crushed by "the firmness of the mind and the human spirit", which are represented by the love of Carmelo and Candela.


It is a musical composition for guitar and orchestra by the composer Valencia. Written in 1939 to Paris, is probably Rodrigo's best-known work, and his success established his composer's reputation as one of the leading figures of the postwar period.. It is considered the most performed Spanish musical work in the world.

Far from the tense atmosphere of Spain during the last stages of the Civil War and close to the European unrest before the Second World War, it is the first work written by Rodrigo for guitar and orchestra. Orchestration is unique: the sound of the guitar seldom confronts an entire orchestra. However, Mai guitar is diluted, but the sound of the instrument stands out at all times. Its world premiere took place on 9 of November 1940 at the Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona and its performer was guitarist Regino Sainz de la Maza, accompanied by the Barcelona Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by César Mendoza Lasalle.

The second movement, the best known of the three, it is marked by its slow passage and reserved melody, introduced by the English horn, with a soft guitar and string accompaniment. A feeling of reserved sorrow pervades the piece. The ornamentation is gradually added to the melody at the beginning. A trill of the tonic-off on the guitar creates the first seeds of tension in the fragment, grow and take root, but they periodically relax back into the melody. Possible culmination of an accumulation. This breaks again within the main melody, Passionate about much, expressed by the sequences with the accompaniment of woodwind instruments. The piece finally settles into a quiet guitar arpeggio, although the string sounds in the background rather than the final note of the guitar which resolves it, and in addition those that provide thematic material for another composition, "Aranjuez, Mon Amour ”by French singer Richard Antony. The third movement is based on a mixture of bars 2/4 i 3/4.
