An amazing record, sonically and musically

This is a great collection of various Spanish-flavored pieces from the heyday of Mercury Living Presence. Highly recommended light classical music. The recording is amazing; how did they get those sleighbells to sound so lifelike in the opening piece, “Brazilian Sleighbells?”

I grew up listening to the LP version of this, long out of print, and I loved it. It was a joy to listen to the CD. Also, for anyone interested in the history of the music on this CD, there is a thorough set of liner notes, as provided on all the Living Presence CDs.

Highly recommended.
