Both the Albeniz works on this recording began life as piano pieces - the Suite espanola for solo piano (here orchestrated by Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos) and the Rapsodia espanola for two pianos, orchestrated by Cristobal Halffter. They are given immensely colourful performances here, in glorious `Decca Sound`, with Burgos`s 1967 recording of the Suite espanola still considered one of Decca`s demonstration records. Both the Rhapsodies are scored for piano and orchestra, and who better to demonstrate them than Alicia de Larrocha. This reissue forms part of a survey of her much-praised Decca recordings, some of them appearing on CD for the first time.
