La mala sombra (Serrano)

Cora Raga, Trini Avellí, Antonio Palacios, Asensio, Gil. c. Pascual Godés
Blue Moon 7543

This little one-act sainete dates from 1906, and was written to a farcical libretto by the Quintero brothers as a sequel to their previous year's success with El mal de amores. The four numbers presented here in a historic performance from 1933 only last about 13', but Raga and her colleagues make the most of their opportunities - especially Palacios in a very funny parody of Andalucian canto jondo and perhaps even Falla's El amor brujo! This makes an enjoyable filler for the major selection from Serrano's last, uncompleted zarzuela Golondrina de Madrid
