  • The mere fact that Manuel de Falla wrote his scenic music The Three-Cornered Hat for the epochal Russian Ballet of the demanding impresario Diaghilev gives an idea of ​​the historical significance of this work. Although the musical language of the Debussy pupil bears the impressionist traits of the time, the Spanish composer never denies the roots of his homeland. The gripping rhythms and sizzling melodies of the country's folklore animate de Falla's work and earned his tricorn a worldwide reputation overnight.

    As so often in this genre, Swiss conductor Ernest Ansermet proves to be the spiritus rector of the musical execution in this DECCA recording. With meticulous precision, the Orchester de la Suisse Romande brings out the slightest accent, the subtlest figure and the quietest lyrical mixture of sounds. Massive thunderclaps, fiery castanet sounds and sonorous rhythms provide a southern temperament that is close enough to touch, making any comment on the recording quality seem almost superfluous. But this record sounds - plain and simple - unbelievably good.
