Nights in the Gardens of Spain

Madrid Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Enrique Fernandez Arbos
Falla's ' Nights in the Gardens of Spain.' completed in 1916, was first -, heard in England in 1921. According to the composer, ' the themes employed are based op the rhythms, modes, cadences, and ornamental figures which distinguished the popular music of Andalucia, although they are rarely used in their original forms ; and the orchestration frequently employs, and employs in a conventional manner, certain effects peculiar to the popular instruments used in those parts of Spain. The music has no pretensions to being descriptive : it is merely expressive. But something more than the sounds of festivals and dances has inspired these "evocations in -sound." for melancholy and mystery have their part also.'
