José Vianna da Motta (1868-1948) is considered one of the most important composers and pianists in the history of Portuguese music. The Ballada Op.16, composed in 1905, uses two Portuguese folk songs: the "Tricana da Aldeia" and "Ave Maria". The first part is in the form of a variation while the second serves as a quiet ending to a dramatic and virtuous piece. This is considered one of his most complete works.
