Escena andaluza, Op 7
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Escena andaluza, Op 7, for viola and piano quintet, is among the first works Turina wrote in response to the advice he received from Albéniz and Falla. The first movement, Crépuscule du soir (‘Twilight’), evokes the vision of the solo viola as a lone musician playing against the backdrop of twilight in an Andalusian town, represented by the rest of the ensemble. The movement unfolds as a serenade, perhaps to the musician’s beloved. The second movement, titled À la fenêtre (‘At the window’), hints at a dialogue between the lovers, as themes from the first movement are intertwined, unifying the two sections.
