Emilio Aragón backs the mix of the whole album of coplas, Pasión Española, interpreted by Plácido Domingo, and he is in charge of the orchestration of the songs: Falsa Moneda, Ojos Verdes and ¡No Me Quieras Tanto!
“The copla tells a three or four-minute story, I call it a mini-opera, which tries to reach people deeply through text and music. That story must be felt with passion and must be sung with temperament, with warmth, with sense. In Mexico, I was able to listen to the best performers, and in this recording, I remember with admiration those great art-ists who inspire passion in people.”
