The flood-lit magic of nighttime Madrid; the windmills of La Mancha; a 14th century palace in Cordoba; the gardens of Alcazar. These were the sights of inspiration for some of Europe's greatest master composers. This volume of the Naxos Musical Journey takes you on a thrilling tour of Spain featuring the music of Chabrier, Glinka, Massenet and Rimsky-Korsakov. Visit the splendor of Madrid's Plaza Mayor or conjure echoes of Cervantes' Don Quixote chasing windmills at La Mancha. From Viana Palace and its magical gardens and fountains to the lush olive-tree and orange-grove harvests of the Alcazar, this SPANISH FESTIVAL is a sight and sound experience as passionate as the country itself.
