Del amor que quita sueño (2010)
Sponsored by the Junta de Castilla y León, from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism: Fundación Siglo para las Artes de Castilla y León, within the framework of their commemorative activities for the 1100 anniversary of the Reino de León, Estate 910-2010.
"In tune with his own path, with these Romances y Canciones desde el Reino de León Amancio Prada goes back to the anthology of lyrical love that only lingers in the wind; the delicate forms of gallantry from the Middle Ages that are today impatiently awaiting the promises of dawn: the supremacy of courtly love and dreams about history; life sung from its pure desire to original beauty. The passion and brevity of life, the longing for freedom and the knowing smile of lovers who remain today, as then, the most touching and beautiful testimony of popular wisdom against power and death. Guitars and hurdy-gurdy, flutes and lute, mandolin and accordion, cellos and harp give new space to the draught of imagination in order to let breathe the graceful wisdom of anonymous tradition. And the miracle of minstrelsy, the beautiful and innocent love wars that cause us to lose sleep, become accomplice songs of sweetness in his voice, faithful as a rigorous solitary bird as Amancio Prada continues to be."
__ Juan Carlos Mestre
