Today is the birthday of the great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. Carl Grapentine celebrated it this morning at 7:30 on his Alamanac with a familiar ballet score by Falla that premiered in London in 1919 – “The Three-Cornered Hat.” Carl chose a recording by the Philadelphia Orchestra from the 1980s led by Philadelphia’s Music Director of that time. These days this conductor has the same job with the Chicago Symphony. Who is he?
