Transferred directly from the original 35mm three-track film by Bernie Grundman from Bernie Grundman Mastering and Len Horowitz from History of Recorded Sound at Bernie Grundman Mastering, Hollywood.

Manuel de Falla's famed 3 Cornered Hat is a hard piece to perform with the Latin sense of flair and excitement necessary to convey the wonder of the composition. Fiedler on RCA tries with some success to get the flair but is no equal for Argenta on London/Decca. The Jorda read with the London Symphony is electric from the first vocal burst! To say that Jorda owns this piece would not be an overstatement – it is exciting and largely festive in the way de Falla intended it to be! Add to a fantastic performance the Bert Whyte/Everest 35mm recording at London's famed Walthamstow Assembly Hall, and you have a desert island disc.
