This review is from: Paco de Lucia plays Manuel de Falla (Audio CD)
There’s a sense of urgency throughout this album that makes it one of De Lucia’s most exhilerating. The effect is achieved by the deft use of percusion and electric bass as well as the intriguing yet cohesive blend of classical and flamenco schools. The music straddles both worlds, giving the songs more suggestiveness and freeedom while at the same time retaining a strong sense of form. De Falla’s compositions are tight and fast yet grandiose and ambitious. It’s music full of punch and a showcase of sheer relentless inventiveness. Add to this De Lucia’s furious playing and one has a hybrid whose influences may be self-evident but whose effect is stunning, to say the least. There’s a definite modern sound to this album, although the arrangements themselves are sparse, that gives it a dynamism seldom found in other De Lucia works.
