ABOUT THE COMPOSERS

Manuel de Falla, born in 1876 in Cadiz, Spain, is regarded as the greatest Spanish composer of the twentieth century. Falla developed an interest in native Spanish music - in particular Andalusian flamenco. In his music he achieved a fusion of poetry, asceticism, and ardour that represents the spirit of Spain at its purest. He was influenced by Claude Debussy, Paul Dukas, and Maurice Ravel (whose orchestration influenced his own).

Noches en los jardines de España (Nights in the Gardens of Spain; Madrid, 1916), a suite of three impressions for piano and orchestra, evoked the Andalusian atmosphere through erotic and suggestive orchestration and was an apt name for our musical evening. All these works established Falla internationally as the leading Spanish composer.

Issac Albeniz, born in1860 in Camprodon, Spain, has come to be considered one of the most important and influential figures in the history of Spanish music. He was a child prodigy, performing his first concert at the age of four, publishing his first composition at eight. In 1880 Albéniz travelled to Prague, Vienna and Budapest, where he met Liszt. This new contact was a crucial point which consolidated his vocation. After a lengthy stay in Granada his music had become infused with new character, an oriental flavour and Andalusian colour and rhythm which would influence not only other Spanish composers but also French musicians such as Debussy and Ravel.

Franz Liszt, born in 1811, in Doborján, kingdom of Hungary, Austrian Empire [now Raiding, Austria], was a Hungarian pianist and composer of enormous influence and originality. He was renowned in Europe during the Romantic movement and is considered one of the most important composers of this movement. Liszt’s output for solo piano was prodigious, centered on a core of more than 100 original titles, many of which subdivide into sets of half-a-dozen pieces or more. His compositions inspired a whole generation of keyboard virtuosi.

Ernesto Lecuona was a Cuban composer and pianist of worldwide fame. He composed over six hundred pieces, mostly in the Cuban vein, and was a pianist of exceptional skill. Born August 6, 1895 in Guanabacoa, Havana, Cuba, his father was Canarian and his mother was Cuban.

Lecuona is the dominant musical force to have come out of the island nation, and without question one of the major contributors to the emergence of Latin music as a power in the world marketplace. Often called 'the Gershwin of Cuba,' he was friendly with George Gershwin and with the composer Maurice Ravel, who once called Lecuona's immortal "Malaguena," "more melodic and beautiful than my own "Bolero." Lecuona was friendly with many of the most influential composers and musical personalities of his moment in time, and his style and use of forms have influenced all Latin music, even the salsa of today.

He was a prolific composer of songs and music for stage and film. His works consisted of zarzuela, Afro-Cuban and Cuban rhythms, suites and many songs which are still very famous. They include “Siboney” (Canto Siboney), “Malagueña” and “The Breeze And I” (Andalucía).
