Falla – The Three Cornered Hat (Ansermet, L’Orchestre De La Suisse Romande, Berganza) {ORG; US Reissue, Remaster, 2LP, 45rpm; HiRes}+ Redbook




This timeless gem is performed by L’Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, conducted by Ernest Ansermet.

This is a performance to be known as ‘one of the greats.’ The composition, Three-Cornered Hat was premiered by Ansermet, and with its lively rhythms, subtle narratives, dynamic development, and vivid contrast and tone-colors, this version is a masterly performance that none other appears able to exceed. The performance illustrates an ethnic taste that is rich in wild beauty in a truly vivid and dynamic way, while highlighting the lyricism of Falla’s music in a sophisticated, uncompromising manner. The solo singing by the young Berganza is also worth listening to.

1 is HiRes files , 2****RB is Redbook standart  file. otherwise easily detectable on basis of the file size 🙂

My Appologies

Part 2. The Neighbour’s Dance (Seguidillas) – The Miller’s Dance (Farruca) had been accidently tagged wrong .I’ve edited that and added a new playlist cuesheet and DR report file for both the 16/44 and 24/96 version and uploaded new rar’s  If you feel uncomfortable with your old existing version please DL the fixed versions again .

    1. Ah Brasil, Greetings from Germany

      I feel somehow still sorry our team beat you so heavy 2014. Scolari made the worst tactical mistakes one can immagine …it was a massacre…

      Nontheless, enjoy the rip 🙂

  1. Thank you very much, for this excellent version and for this awesome rip in HR.
    I just want to clarify to two errors that I have detected in the names of the dances of track 2:
    The Neighbor’s Dance (Seguedillas) – The Miller’s Dance (Farruda)
    The names correct, are is Seguidillas and Farruca
    I hope you take it into account, to correct them.
    Thanks for everything,
    Angel Duerto

    1. Thank you … I’ll correct it and reup the new corrected album including new DR report, cuesheet and playlist file. 🙂 Ready to DL in about 45 minutes from now on…

      Until then those who DL’d already …you are free to correct the alum tags yourself as it is a thing of minutes and pretty easy to do via mp3tag,foobar or related.

      Thanks for your comment.

      Enjoy the rip
