Notes & Reviews:

When de Falla wrote "The Three-Cornered Hat" in 1916–1919 (after a story by Pedro Antonio de Alarcon), he was already a well-known composer. The first version, developed as a Pantomime, Diaghilev saw in Madrid and then commissioned de Falla to develop his score into a ballet. The ballet was first performed in 1919 in London, conducted by Ernest Ansermet with set designs and costumes by Pablo Picasso. The final score was a marvelous work, one of de Falla's most beautiful, and it is presented here in its entirety. Prokofiev's "Chout" received its first performance in Paris 1921, where it was well received. The score, calling for a large orchestra, is richly melodic and has a typical Russian folkloric quality as well as the burlesque elements that would appear in many of Prokofiev's most famous works.

BBC Music Magazine
Weighty and unhurried, it has a confident feel for the dance-rhythms and a rubato that springs from the musical moment...Bollon's pacing allows space for well-judged accents and plenty of characterful phrasing from the strings and several woodwind principals.
