This compilation of Kreisler pieces is absolutely wonderful, and while not “deep” music, it is great for relaxing later in the evening, helping one to unwind from the day. Perlman’s technique is excellent, warm and very sympathetic–rich with a lilting melancholy that’s inherent in much of the music. He makes it sound so easy, as effortless as if he could be humming the tunes. As for his accompanist, Sanders is a supportive but accomplished partner. I recommend this recording very highly. The playing is as full of insidious charm and romantic almost to the point of sentimentality, which in my view is not a bad thing at all.

.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.

Audiophile reissue from the 90s (180g, limited edition) from my own collection Spanish critics have long hailed Gonzalo Soriano’s two recordings of Nights in the Gardens of Spain–this one from 1962 and an earlier effort with Ataulfo Argenta–as among the finest readings of the score ever committed to disc. It’s easy to see why. Soriano brings to bear a conception that is firm, detailed, and energetic and plays the piece with real flair. His partner on the podium, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, only 28 years old when the recording was made, sparks a magnificent account from the Paris Conservatory Orchestra: masculine, evocative, and glowingly ardent. For this most impressionistic of Falla’s scores, it’s an ideal sound.
