La vega
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
La vega was originally intended to be part of a suite entitled The Alhambra, based on a set of poems by Albéniz’s English friend and patron Francis Burdett Money-Coutts. La vega presents two distinctive themes: the opening section is loosely based on the Andalusian petenera and exudes a brooding melancholy. The middle section, however, is more buoyant and evokes the jota, a dance native to Aragon in the north of Spain. Albéniz wrote of La vega to a friend that ‘What I have composed is the entire plain of Granada, contemplated from the Alhambra’.
