The 'Suite de los espejos' is a remarkable work for its time. The very first word, 'Christ', was a provocation and a challenge to the predominance of dogmatic Marxist-Leninist ideas in Soviet art. García Lorca's text is truly poetic and enriched with surrealist and irrational elements. The poetry dwells in terms of virtual reality on the idea of a mirror, on reflection, and on multiplication. The composer makes use of an eight-tone series which is based on mirror symmetry and characteristically consonant intervals (thirds). (Yuri Kholopov).
