Teresa Berganza Sings de Falla's Polo w/Gerald Moore on YouTube

Gerald Moore hardly breaks a sweat in this 1960 film of Polo from de Falla's Siete canciones populaires españolas with soprano Teresa Berganza. One of the harder songs of the set, the second verse features some tricky repeated note passages. Take a look at how Moore's high hand position allows him to execute those passages with ease.

  1. Impressive indeed. I couldn't hear a lot of the sixteenth-note triplets though ... maybe a function of the sound quality?
