    Reviews :

    "This is a very famous historic performance of Manuel de Falla's The Three Cornered Hat with Ernest Ansermet conducting L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, a crown jewel of the DECCA catalog.

    The remaster process used Esoteric equipment at JVC studios in Japan. This Esoteric-JVC collaboration brilliantly revived the original recordings. The production was done without compromise throughout the entire process.

    Ernest Ansermet (November 11, 1883–February 20, 1969), a great conductor who left his mark on the history of classical music with his exquisite and colorful performances as the conductor for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, he premiered many important compositions of the early 20th century. He is known for founding the Swiss Romande Orchestra in 1919 and, as its musical director, developing it into a global presence. In 1946, he entered an exclusive contract with the Decca label and made a vast amount of recordings covering French, Russian, 20th century, and German and Austrian music. Many of these recordings were highly evaluated in the LP age, complemented as they were by excellent recording technology.

    The ballet El sombrero de tres picos (The Three Cornered Hat), expanded from the earlier one act The Governor and the Miller’s Wife after Diaghilev saw the original, was first performed in London in 1919 by Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, Ernest Ansermet taking over the baton after the first rehearsal from Falla. Choreography was by Massine and the sets by Pablo Picasso. It’s a simple tale of a magistrate trying to seduce a miller’s faithful wife, several costume changes and ending with the magistrate getting come-uppance though not how he had hoped." Posi+ive Feedback Review by Teresa Goodwin
