Azuline Duo Play Danza by Manuel de Falla

The fantastic Canadian Azuline Duo (Emma Rush, guitar and Sara Traficante, flute) play Danza del molinero by Manuel de Falla (1876-1946). This comes via Emma Rush’s great YouTube Channel. This piece comes from act one of El sombrero de tres picos (The Three-Cornered Hat or Le tricorne), a ballet choreographed by Léonide Massine to music by Manuel de Falla. Danza de la molinera (Fandango)is the Dance of the Miller’s Wife. Often played by guitarists as a solo (Bream crowd onward etc), this is a nice arrangement and with flute brings out more of the orchestral flavour of the original allowing the guitar to focus on the Spanish/flamenco influence.
