Souvenir de Porto Rico 'Marche des Gibaros', RO250 Op 31

1857/8; published in Mainz in circa 1860; alternative titles: Marche des Gibaros; Recuerdos de Puerto Rico

Conceived during his days on Mount Matouba, the march of the Gibaros (Puerto Rican peasants) uses a traditional Christmas folksong of the region. It is hard to understand why it does not appear in recitals, having much to offer besides its invigorating pianistic demands.

from notes by Jeremy Nicholas © 1990

Conçue durant son séjour au Mont Matouba, la marche des Gibaros (paysans portoricains) utilise un chant de Noël folklorique traditionnel de la région. Il est difficile de comprendre pourquoi ce morceau n’est pas plus en faveur dans les récitals, car il a tant à offrir à part ses exigences pianistiques tonifiantes.

Der Marsch der Gibaros (der puertorikanischen Bauern), während der Zeit komponiert, als Gottschalk am Monte Matouba lebte, benutzt ein traditionelles Weihnachtslied der Region. Es fällt schwer, zu verstehen, warum diese Komposition nicht ins Konzertrepertoire eingegangen ist, da sie zusätzlich zu ihren erfrischenden pianistischen Anforderungen vieles zu bieten hat.
