CUC Music: Sun Feb 15

Hot, passionate music from Spain and Latin America will warm you on a chilly February morning in this Sunday’s belated Valentine’s Day celebration. Transcriptions from Manuel de Falla’s ballets El amor brujo (Love by Witchcraft) and The Three-Cornered Hat -- tales of love run amok -- will be included alongside a sensitive evocation of a “charming girl” (Danza de la moza donosa) by Argentine composer Alberto Ginastera. In addition, Federico Mompou quotes a popular Catalan folk tune, which says “Whoever has love scorns it, whoever has it not craves it”, in his Canción y Danza No. 1. The Prelude opens with the brooding opening movement of Isaac Albéniz’s Iberia Suite, which can be previewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ARDh-G45d_8 (below).
