Since I was first introduced to Fallaís Siete Canciones Populares, I was smitten by the extreme emotions conveyed in these songs and began my journey discovering the voice of the Spanish composers. They convey an array of intense emotions, sensuality, hatred, anger, loss, adoration, excitement, humour, love and death. Music that goes straight to the heart.
IN SEARCH OF DUENDE ~ THE SPIRIT OF SPAIN is Buddug Verona James’s passionate and memorable recital of songs from Catalunia, Andalucia and Valencia, by Falla, Granados, Lorca, Rodrigo and Turina with a song cycle based on three Lorca poems composed especially for Buddug by Jonathan Dove.
