Danza, RO66 Op 33

composer
1857/9; published in Paris in 1860

 
Composed during his time in the West Indies, Danza contrasts the European elegance of the polka with a beguiling Puerto Rican habanera. It neatly encapsulates the two sides of Gottschalk’s musical influences.

Composée durant son séjour aux Antilles, Danza contraste l’élégance européenne de la polka avec une habanera portoricaine ensorcelante. Elle encapsule habilement les deux influences musicales de Gottschalk.

Français: Alain Midoux

Während seiner Zeit in der Karibik komponiert, stellt dieses Werk die europäische Eleganz der Polka einer berückenden puertorikanischen Habanera gegenüber. Es faßt die zwei Pole der musikalischen Einflüsse, unter denen Gottschalk stand, geschickt zusammen.
