Program notes

Dive into the life and music of Spanish composer Manuel de Falla in a rich documentary portrait by the renowned filmmaker Larry Weinstein.

Manuel de Falla lived a life of near monastic austerity, but composed music of truly sensual beauty. Set against the backdrop of de Falla's favorite haunts in Spain and Argentina, Larry Weinstein's When the Fire Burns transports us to the heart this paradoxical artist's life and work with performances by Charles Dutoit and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, pianist Alicia de Larrocha, and many other captivating musicians.
