Description: Collectors of rare Spanish repertoire will be interested in this live (mono) recording of Esplà's 1943 concerto which mixes Iberian folk elements with a Stravinskian astringency of harmony (ditto for his sonata which, as you can see from its opus number, was his very next composition). Alícia de Larrocha (piano), Spanish National Orchestra; Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos.
