Overview

This is one of Plácido Domingo's most personal albums to date, as he performs coplas, the traditional popular songs of Hispanic origin with which he grew up. Coplas express drama, profess love, impart humor, describe history or just comment on everyday life. In Spain the genre had a boom in the 1930s, when many composers of popular songs and light classical music contributed to the tradition with art songs. Domingo has made a personal selection of coplas -- he describes them as "mini operas" -- and recorded them in Madrid with the Orquesta de la Comunidad de Madrid under Miguel Roa. With splendid new arrangements, this recording revives a beautiful, nostalgic genre. Pasión Española is a must-have album for all lovers of Domingo's art. From the Label
