EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Among Gottschalk’s most difficult yet happiest inspirations and an obvious precursor of Albéniz and Granados, this was probably composed in Seville in 1853 but not published in its final form until seven or eight years later. Who else but Gottschalk was systematically utilising what might loosely be described as indigenous Spanish rhythms as early as this? After him, almost half a century passed before the arrival of the modern Spanish school.
