I'm sure you'll enjoy that work. It has a poetic and rather magical atmosphere.  I like this recording:


Finished listening to El sombrero de tres picos from Juanjo Mena, I found it a bit too slack. I might have Ansermet too ingrained in me.

Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos on EMI was the performance I "cut my teeth" with so to speak. I'd imagine the Mena is too slack since he's not too terribly convincing in several of the performances I've heard from him.

+1. Picturesque.
The Markevitch recording sounds great, but it is not complete.

Yeah, the Markevitch recording is fantastic. It's not complete? Are you sure?

I am traveling in mountains and jungle now, but the Philips album on my iPod has only 2 tracks of 3 picos. The performance is phenomenal though. Were it complete, it would have been formidable.

Let me know what you got.  :)

You're absolutely right and I don't know why I was thinking about El amor brujo. :-\ Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you for your clarification. I wish he had done the entire Sombrero. Anyway, his recording of Amor Brujo and Sombrero are extraordinary!

Yes, indeed. Happy jungle-trekking. :)
