Manchega 'Étude de concert', RO143 Op 38

composer
? 1852/3; published in New York in 1860

 
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.

from notes by Jeremy Nicholas © 1994

Parmi les inspirations les plus difficiles, mais les plus heureuses, de Gottschalk, ce morceau, qui annonce visiblement Albéniz et Granados, fut probablement composé à Séville en 1853, mais publié sous sa forme définitive quelques sept ou huit ans plus tard seulement. Qui, en dehors de Gottschalk, utilisait de façon systématique, déjà à cette époque, des rythmes que l’on pourrait qualifier d’espagnols autochtones? Il faut attendre presqu’un demi-siècle après lui avant l’arrivée de l’école espagnole moderne.

Français: Madeleine Jay

Dieses Stück gehoert zu den schwierigsten und doch glücklichsten Eingebungen Gottschalks und ist offensichtlich ein Vorläufer von Albéniz und Granados. Es wurde wahrscheinlich im Jahre 1853 in Sevilla komponiert, aber erst sieben oder acht Jahre später in seiner Endfassung veröffentlicht. Wer außer Gottschalk machte sich so früh systematisch zu eigen, was man locker als einheimischen spanischen Rhythmus bezeichnen könnte? Zwischen ihm und dem Beginn der Modernen Spanischen Schule lag fast ein halbes Jahrhundert.
