Based on a story by Pedro Antonio de Alarc˘n, this witty musical frolic recounts a magistrate's attempts to seduce a miller's wife. First performed in 1919, this staple of both the ballet and orchestral repertoires is enhanced with the flavor of Andalusian folk melodies, a characteristic common to Manuel de Falla's music of the period. This affordable miniature score is reproduced from an authoritative 1921 English edition, complete with bar-numbered movements for easy reference. Affordable, dura...

Since the first performances, cer...

Echoes of Bohemian folk music are here mixed with cantabile themes, while his motivic working shows him to be a master...
Although Dvorak's stay in America (1892-95) was very successful, the composer suffered a good deal from homesickness. He had begun the string quartet in A flat major in New York, but continued with it only after his return to Bohemia in December 1895. There is no trace of the influence of Indian or African-American music in this, his final chamber work; rather, the piece is striking for the amount of cantabile themes and motives, and their contrasting and artistic treatment. It seems that his rel...
