The Suite Populaire Espagnole is by Spanish composer Manuel de Falla.
He published six of his Seven Popular Spanish Songs of 1914 in a setting for violin and piano. This arrangement for cello and piano is by Maurice Maréchal.
The six songs are: El paño moruno, Asturiana, Jota, Nana, Canción and Polo. The one called Nana is an arrangement of an old Andalusian lullaby that Falla’s mother sang to him as a young child.
Inbal Megiddo (cello) and Jian Liu (piano)
