Background

With its sub-title The Fountain of Tears, it is clear that Ainadamar is not a comedy.  However Golijov's fascinating mix of musical idioms, including Latin, jazz and modern, make it an attractive work to listen to.

The theme concerns the great Spanish poet-dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca, who was murdered during the Spnish Civil War by Franco's forces.
