A walk in the score

…digging a bit deeper

Siete canciones populares españolas

Siete canciones populares españolas, by Manuel de Falla, is one of the most popular cycles of folk-songs in music history. Originally written for piano and voice, there are transcriptions for voice and guitar, cello and piano and two versions for orchestra.

Canción

Second to last of the De Falla “Siete canciones populares españolas”, Canción is apparently cheerful, but an underlying anger accompanies the whole piece.

Jota

Wrapped in the upbeat rhythm of one of the most popular dances of Spain, in De Falla’s hands Jota is a tale of secret love and melancholic farewell.
