Notes & Reviews:

Although influenced by Manuel de Falla, Halffter's 'Concertante Overture' of 1932, for solo piano and orchestra, shows a more forward-looking style. 'La Madrugada del Panadero' of 1940, a ballet-pantomime, was a stage collaboration with Jose Bergamin, as was the 1935 ballet-pantomime 'Don Lindo de Almeria', first seen in Barcelona. Both are in a colorful, accessible style of rhythmic and tonal contrast, enlivened by off-beat accents recalling Stravinsky.
