Musician's or Publisher's Notes
Albeniz's prelude, is
perhaps the quintessential "Spanish guitar" piece. A favorite of
Andres Segovia, and virtually every guitarist that followed him, the piece has
become so widely identified with the guitar that most are astonished to
discover that the work was originally written for the piano.
Albeniz wrote the piece during the early 1890's, most likely in London where he
had established himself as a concert pianist and theatre composer. The work was
first published in Barcelona in 1892 as the opening "Preludio" of a
three movement set entitled "Chants d' Espagne", op. 232.
most evocative piece of music, has inspired numerous dramatic stories, ranging
from biblical thunderstorms to devastating earthquakes, which are usually found
as adornments to the backs of old covers. Ana Vidovic
