From the Vault: Pilar Lorengar Spanish Songs with Félix Lavilla


Released on Discos Columbia S.A. in 1973, this program of Spanish composers is exquisitely performed by soprano Pilar Lorengar and pianist Félix Lavilla. Some of this repertoire was recorded by Ms. Lorengar with pianist Alicia de Larrocha and with orchestra under conductor Jesus Lopez-Cobos for Decca Records. Perhaps that is why this LP has not been re-issued on CD or MP3. Thanks to Tenorisimo1975 on YouTube, you can hear all the tracks except one ("Cuando tan hermosa os miro" of Turina) in the playlist below. Columbia's back-catalog is owned by EMI, so perhaps one day someone will see fit to release these items as a tribute to a great singer.

Tres tonadillas (Granados)
El majo discreto; El mirar de la maja; El tra la lá y el punteado
Seis canciones castellanas (Guridi)
No quiero tus avellanas; Cómo quieres que adivine, Mañanita de San Juan
Homenaje a Lope de Vega (Turina)
Cuando tan hermosa os miro; Si con mis deseos
Cantares (Turina)
Asturiana (Nin)
Tríptico de canciones (García Leoz)
De Cádiz a Gibraltar; A la Flor, a la pitiflor; Por el aire van
Madre unos ojuelos VI (Toldrá)
Cantarcillo (Toldrá)
Cuatro madrigales amatorios (J. Rodrigo)
¿Con qué la lavaré?; Vos me matásteis; ¿De dónde venís, amore?; De los álamos vengo, madre
