The pianist Rosa Torres-Pardo makes her directorial debut in a film about Falla

Madrid, Jul 29 (EFE) .- The dialogue between the discipline and the constraint of classical music and the genius and freedom of flamenco will form the backbone of a feature film about Manuel de Falla that constitutes the directorial debut of the pianist Rosa Torres-Pardo, in collaboration with actress Lucía Álvarez.

Under the title “Amores Brujos”, the team for this production has just started filming with a script by the playwright José Ramón Fernández and “the valuable poetic contribution” by Luis García Montero, according to the press release sent to the media.

Produced by MEZZOFORTE 111 in collaboration with FTF CAM, the film also has the participation of great music artists such as Cañizares, Israel Fernández, María Toledo, Carmen París or Rocío Márquez, among others.

Rosa Torres-Pardo, 2017 National Music Award in the interpretation modality, has stood out for focusing on the dissemination of Spanish music and on the recovery of the repertoire of national composers, combining various disciplines such as flamenco, poetry and dance.
