    Release Date: 14 Mar 17

    After a first album dedicated to Italy and its bel canto, Enrique Mazzola and the Orchestre national d’Île-de-France have crossed the Mediterranean in search of Spain and one of its most emblematic composers, Manuel de Falla. Imbued with bewitching allure of flamenco and carried by the charismatic voice of Esperanza Fernández in the role of Candela, a Gypsy haunted by the ghost of her lover, El amor brujo shares this album with another masterwork, the ballet suites from Le Tricorne.

Recent highlights include performances of Rossini’s Stabat Mater, recording work and regional touring.
