Podcast: «L'ultimo abenzeraggio» by Felip Pedrell, a multiform opera
Let's start these "Trops" with a chapter dedicated to Felip Pedrell, a multitasking character: musicologist, pedagogue, critic, composer. Today we focus on this last facet, and we do so following the publication of the orchestral prelude of his opera "L'ultimo abenzeraggio". We talk about it with the musicologist Francesc Cortès.
