La lisonjera (‘The flatterer’) is a kind of witty serenade in D flat. Its capricious melody displays some Spanish turns of phrase, and indeed the work makes an agreeable parallel to Debussy’s La sérénade interrompue.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 1992

La lisonjera («La flatteuse») est d’inspiration simple, une sorte de sérénade spirituelle en ré bémol. On trouve dans sa mélodie capricieuse quelques tours de phrase espagnols, et le morceau est en fait un parallèle agréable à La sérénade interrompue de Debussy.

La lisonjera („Die Schmeichlerin“) ist eine Art geistreicher Serenade in Des-Dur. Ihre kapriziöse Melodie zeichnet sich durch einige spanische Wendungen aus, wie auch das ganze Werk eine durchaus liebenswerte Parallele zu Debussys Sérénade interrompue abgibt.
