“Quickly becoming a cult LP when issued in 1980, this brilliantly inventive set of twelve variations on the 16th-century Portuguese theme ‘La Folia’…There are forays into jazz, hoedown, Indian sitar music, and even a quote from Mancini’s Pink Panther! The cherry on the icing is to have it back on pristine vinyl again.” Recording = 5/5; Performance = 5/5 – Chris Breunig, Hi-Fi News, December 2007,

All the composers in the world who write their own Folia don’t keep a close account of what they are doing. They mature patiently like the tree that does not haste his sap; they soak up everything and remain confident in the torments of spring, without anxiety that they might not know another spring. And spring comes and a quiet weariness overcomes them, even if they are patient, carefree and calm, as if all eternity lay before them. They can then love their Folia and their solitude; they endure the pain it causes them and succeed in investing the sound of their complaint with beauty.” — Gregorio Paniagua
