Lady of Spain


Tolchard Evans (1901–1978) was a north Londoner who achieved celebrity between the Wars as a songwriter and dance-band leader. So successful was he at imitating the Spanish paso doble style in his song Lady of Spain (1931) that it was accepted with enthusiasm even in Spain itself. We hear it here in a concert arrangement by Ken Warner (1902–1988) from the original version by Fred Hartley (1905–1991).

Tolchard Evans (1901-1978), Londonien du nord, devint, dans l’entre-deux-guerres, un parolier et un chef d’orchestre de danse réputé. Sa chanson Lady of Spain (1931) imita si bien le style espagnol du paso doble que l’Espagne même l’adopta avec enthousiasme. Nous l’entendons ici dans un arrangement de concert de Ken Warner (1902-­1988), d’après la version originale de Fred Hartley (1905-1980).

Tolchard Evans (1901-1978) aus dem Norden Londons wurde zwischen den Weltkriegen als Liedkomponist und Leiter einer Tanzkapelle bekannt. So erfolgreich hat er in seinem Song Lady of Spain (1931) den spanischen Paso doble imitiert, daß das Stück sogar in Spanien mit Begeisterung aufgenommen wurde. Hier hören wir ein Konzertarrangement von Ken Warner (1902-1988) nach der Originalfassung von Fred Hartley (1905-1980).
