Guitarre, Op 28


Guitarre, Op 28, is an encore piece for violin and piano which Lalo (himself a violinist of Spanish descent) wrote for his own use. It was Gabriel Pierné who resurrected the work when he orchestrated it, long after Lalo’s disappearance, to suit one of his programmes with the Colonne Orchestra.

Guitarre op. 28 est un bis pour violon et piano que Lalo (lui-même d’origine espagnole) écrivit pour son propre usage. C’est Gabriel Pierné qui ressuscita l’œuvre lorsqu’il l’orchestra, bien après la disparition de Lalo, pour un de ses programmes avec l’Orchestre Colonne.

Guitarre op. 28 ist ein frühes Zugabestück für Geige und Klavier, das Lalo (selbst ein Geiger spanischer Abstammung) für den eigenen Vortrag schuf. Gabriel Pierné war es, der das Werk wieder zum Leben erweckte, als er es orchestrierte, lange nachdem Lalo in Vegessenheit geraten war, um es in eines seiner Programme mit dem Orchestre Colonne aufzunehmen.
