score analysis

A walk in the score

…digging a bit deeper

Canción

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

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.

Asturiana

Asturiana

A tree, weeping through the notes of the piano, becomes pure poetry in De Falla’s third of “Siete canciones populares españolas”, the Asturiana.

Seguidilla murciana

Seguidilla murciana

Second one of the “Siete canciones populares españolas”, with Seguidilla murciana De Falla keeps intact the original character of the song. With a twist.

El paño moruno

El paño moruno

First song in the cycle Siete canciones populares españolas, with El paño moruno De Falla throws the listener right into the Spanish folksong tradition.
