"I somewhat agree with the first reviewer that everything Lara did is unforgettable. He was indeed one of the greatest Mexican composers of the twentieth century. But here's a warning: The product description says that this is an Agustin Lara recording. It is not. It is a recording of Lara compositions by a couple of pendejos calling themselves "Los Pianos Barrocos".
While the music here covers some Lara compositions written about Spain, hence the title Suite Espanola, these guys have none of Lara's soul and emotion. In addition, the CD is less than a half-hour long and contains no liner notes to enlighten the listener as to who these cabrones are. So I really got the chorizo on this one.
Some of the music is not bad, these guys are good pianists, but its just not Lara. I see I bought the last copy available, so the joke's on me. If this becomes available again, avoid getting the chorizo yourself by ensuring that the Lara that you order will be Lara indeed. I'm almost tempted to return this, but its a hassle so I will shelve it with great trepidation for a future generation to either enjoy or to use as a frisbee."
