'As in the previous volumes, Peter Jacobs shows himself to be fluent, clean-fingered, elegantly delicate where required, and able to invest the music with fine nuances of tone and pace―an ideal interpreter of Chaminade' (Gramophone)

Sérénade espagnole, Op 150
composer
1926 piano arrangement of the song 'Chanson espagnole' dating from 1895

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Sérénade espagnole was originally published in 1895 as a song under the title Chanson espagnole. It rapidly became one of Chaminade’s most popular works in that genre, and was issued in a number of arrangements by other hands (Fritz Kreisler, no less, arranged it for piano trio in 1903); Chaminade’s own solo piano version appeared in 1926. Its hints of local colour, haunting tune, and ‘Spanish’ rhythms immediately reveal the reasons for the piece’s success.
