Rodrigo: Cuatro madrigales amatorios (6:59)
Bernarda Fink, mezzo-soprano; Anthony Spiri, piano
Written between 1902 and 1965, the music recorded here reflects both the evolution of Spanish art song in the 20th century and the attachment of its composers to France. Manuel de Falla’s famous Seven Spanish Folksongs are placed here alongside elegant little gems like the Three Spanish Songs and Four Sephardic Songs of Joaquín Rodrigo.
