This Postcard features songs not only by some of Spain’s most famous and best-loved composers but also by their French neighbours, Delibes, Poulenc and Ravel who were inspired – often so in Ravel’s case – by Spanish music and poetry. There are wider Iberian connections too, most notably in Christobal Halffter’s settings of Portuguese poetry and his excursion into Portugal’s beautiful fado tradition.
