Another great ruse by Lorca. He quotes Halffter to the effect that the "three greatest musicians in Spain are Manuel de Falla, me, his disciple, and Federico García Lorca." But of course Haflfter is just reduced in this quote to being a Falla disciple, so that leave Falla and Lorca. But Since Falla is obviously the best composer of that time in Spain, it lets Lorca be the greatest musician, even though that was the career the didn't pursue. He can be the greatest poet and dramatist and the second best musician.
