Unique collaboration with Flamenco legend: After his success with album Aranjuez in 2010, Xavier de Maistre presents a new Spanish project including a cooperation with Flamenco legend and castanets soloist Lucero Tena. The album features popular repertoire of Spanish Classical Music: including compositions of Albeniz, Granados, Tarrega and de Falla, arranged for harp and castanets. The album shows this music under a completely new light, by keeping the nostalgic and intoxicating Spanish roots. Xavier de Maistre and Lucero Tena have established their instruments, harp & castanets, as solo instruments in concert halls which makes the project very special. The combination of their instruments is unique and no similar product is on the market. Xavier and Lucero were introduced to each other by director Jesús López Cobos. Xavier de Maistre fell in love with Lucero' story and personality. Shortly after, they decided to record a repertoire they had in common: Spanish Music. The project has been recorded in one of the most beautiful halls in Paris, the Galerie Dorée at the Hotel de Toulouse, which has been featured in movies like "Vatel" and "Marie Antoinette".
