Aragón  [4'39]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Federico Longas’s Aragón was published in 1935 and dedicated to Horowitz. Ernesto Lecuona, Cuba’s master of coffee-table charm, never wrote anything as insinuating or virtuosic. There are hints of Turina’s La Feria (from Sevilla, Op 2) and Albéniz’s Navarra, but Longas’s style and content are so scintillating and infectious that only a Puritan could fail to respond.
