La romanesca

composer
1913; after a popular Spanish sixteenth-century dance tune

 
La romanesca is a popular Spanish sixteenth-century dance tune, arranged by Achron in 1913. Liszt composed a piano piece based on the same theme (S252a, in two versions), and although Achron made arrangements for violin and piano of two other Liszt piano works in the same year (Gnomenreigen and Liebestraum No 3) his version of La romanesca makes no mention of the Hungarian composer (despite being listed in some Achron sources as an arrangement of Liszt).

La romanesca est un air de danse populaire espagnol du XVIe siècle, arrangé par Achron en 1913. Liszt a composé une pièce pour piano sur le même thème (S252a, deux versions différentes) et, même si Achron a transcrit pour violon et piano, la même année, deux autres œuvres pour piano de Liszt (Ronde des lutins et Rêve d’amour nº 3), sa version de La romanesca ne fait aucune mention du compositeur hongrois (bien qu’elle apparaisse dans certaines sources d’Achron comme un arrangement de Liszt).

La romanesca ist eine populäre spanische Tanzmelodie, die aus dem 16. Jahrhundert stammt und die Achron 1913 arrangierte. Liszt hatte ein Klavierstück komponiert, dem dasselbe Thema zugrunde liegt (S 252a, in zwei Versionen), und obwohl Achron im selben Jahr zwei andere Klavierwerke Liszts (Gnomenreigen und Liebestraum Nr. 3) für Geige und Klavier arrangierte, findet sich in seiner Version von La romanesca keinerlei Hinweis auf den ungarischen Komponisten (obwohl es in einigen Achron-Quellen als Liszt-Arrangement verzeichnet ist).
