Stephen Hough’s own punningly entitled On Falla
, a delectable gift celebrating my partnership (officially sealed after thirty years) with Lyndon Scarffe. Stephen Hough remembers Falla’s Fantasía bética
and Ritual Fire Dance
and captures with uncanny skill music ‘as abrupt as when there’s slid/Its rich gold blazing pall/From some black coffin lid’.
