With Donald Macleod.
Since his brutal death at the hands of Franco's fascist thugs, poet and dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca has become a heroic figure in Spain. As well as mixing with the greatest creative talents of his era - such as the artist Salvador Dali - he spent time with the Gypsies, absorbing their songs and culture. His work has come to represent all things essentially Spanish and has been a source of inspiration for composers around the world.
