  22 January 2013 La Processión du Rocio and Danzas gitanas, 24 September 2013 Canto a Sevilla, 26 September 2013 Rapsodica Sinfónica  

This is the latest album in the ongoing series of Spanish orchestral music with the BBC Philharmonic under Juanjo Mena, and Mena’s second featuring the works by Joaquín Turina, one of the leading Spanish composers of his generation.

The works recorded here are filled with the inspiration which Turina found in his native Andalusia and particularly the city of Seville. La procesión del Rocío, his first orchestral work, was inspired by memories of a procession held in the gypsy quarter of Seville and is filled with lively dance rhythms. Canto a Sevilla, a song cycle with orchestra, is a heartfelt tribute to Seville and its culture, taking on themes such as the vibrant Easter Procession, Seville’s beautiful ornamental fountains, and even a ghost that haunts the streets at night. Danzas gitanas, a collection of Andalusian gypsy dances, introduces a nocturnal atmosphere into a style normally characterised by bright orchestral colours and extravagant rhythmic intricacies. The Rapsodia sinfónica, one of his last works, represents a more mature, reflective composer. The use of piano and string orchestra limits the available palette of colours, Turina instead deciding to focus on the intimate relationship between the ensemble and soloist, a role here filled by Martin Roscoe.



 "... María Espada adds a  luminous glow to this homage to Seville in all its mystery and magic, exuberance and eerie phantasms."

Geoffrey Norris - Gramophone magazine - August 2014


 "...For Chandos, the piece [Espada] hugely benefits not only having a Spanish conductor wholly in tune with Turina’s language (which is by no means all splashy Picasso-esque colour) but an orchestra brimming with top-class instrumentalists, fully on top of the many solos they are allocated, not just in the Canto but throughout the disc. I would hazard a guess on present evidence that the oboe was Turina’s favourite orchestral instrument: the oboe solos here are meltingly beautiful everywhere... Excellent recorded sound from Manchester and an informatve booklet note from Gerald Larner also contribute to the hope that Chandos wll continue to mine what is proving to be a very fruitful musical vein."
