  2. Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini Op 43 - Sergey Rachmaninov
  3. Three-cornered hat - Manuel de Falla

Infused with the rhythms, sounds and smells of his native Spain, Manuel de Falla’s ballet The three-cornered hat, which includes two songs sung by Rebecca Afonwy-Jones, provides a fitting tribute to Spain. The legend that the violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini sold his soul to the devil in order to become obscenely talented has inspired numerous composers, but the finest variations of the theme is considered to be Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini, performed by Vadym Kholodenko. Richard Wagner was no stranger to political controversy yet his music from Tannhäuser offers some of the most tranquil and sublime music ever written.
