Notes & Reviews:
Although Halffter's electronic productions enjoyed international prestige, in Spain they continue to be little-known. The three compositions on this CD are extremely interesting, not only because they represent an important period for the composer, but also because they are without doubt among the works of greatest creative imagination for the way in which Halffter uses electro-acoustics.
