TORROBA CASTLES OF SPAIN PDF

The Castles of Spain is a collection of eight short, programmatic works, each inspired by a different castle in Spain. Indeed, he has achieved that goal with The Castles of Spain, as each piece of the collection serves as a quintessential example of the composer's mastery at writing music for the concert stage without losing the soul of the folk music that inspires it. The collection opens with the moderately brisk Turegano and then moves into the leisurely Torija. While the contrast between contiguous movements is not always stark, they do alternate between moderately fast and slow. It is in the slower movements that Moreno Torroba 's virtuosity at shaping rhapsodic, lyrical melodies manifests itself.
