Falla: The Three-Cornered Hat Suites 1 & 2

Manuel de Falla’s The Three-Cornered Hat was based on the 1874 novel of the same name by Pedro Antonio de Alarcón, which tells the story of a magistrate in love with the wife of a miller. Falla's musical adaptation drew the interest of the famed impresario Serge Diaghilev, who was introduced to Falla by Igor Stravinsky while on his first company tour to Spain in 1916. After a years-long production process involving Diaghilev, choreographer Leonide Massine, and artist Pablo Picasso, The Three-Cornered Hat premiered in London in 1919 and became a popular hit. The orchestral suite, extracted from Falla's ballet, showcases a range of Spanish dances from the fandango to the farruca and, lastly, the jota. Filled with driving rhythms and folk-inspired melodies, The Three-Cornered Hat embodies the early twentieth-century quest to forge a new Spanish musical identity. MSO.LIVE brings you this dynamic performance from Hamer Hall, hailed by Limelight as ‘a vivid full stop to Chief Conductor Jaime Martín's first year with the MSO.’
