Spanish composer Manuel DeFalla wrote his lush "Nights in the Gardens of Spain" for piano and orchestra when he was homesick in Paris. "I was so far from Spain that I may have depicted the nights as more beautiful than they are in reality -- that's Paris for you," he says of the piece. Tune in to Monday's Of Note with Katy Henriksen to catch the entirety in a performance from Phillippe Entremont and the Philadelphia Orchestra led by Eugene Ormandy.
