My performance of Debussy's 'Evening in Grenada'. I have recently had the hammers on my piano replaced, and the sound is much more rich. :-)
Text below is taken from an on-line article; I generally suck at writing descriptions for music. ;-)
"La Soirée dans Grenade (Evening in Granada), the second piece from Debussy's piano suite, Estampes, gained immediate acclaim from none other than Manuel de Falla who attested to its authentic Spanish flavor despite Debussy's having never been in Spain except in his imagination. On that point, Debussy once wrote, "When you don't have any money to go on holiday, you must make do by using your imagination." Michael Brown
"Meaning "prints" or "engravings," Claude Debussy's Estampes, composed in 1903, is a musical journey that spans nearly half the world. It begins with evocations of East Asia in the opening piece, Pagodas; then takes the listener to Spain in La soirée dans Grenade; and, finally, returns to Debussy's own country with Jardins sous la pluie.
La soirée dans Grenade draws on the habanera to evoke the Spanish city. Though actually a dance of Cuban origin, the habanera became quite popular in France during the 19th century, and was on several occasions used by French composers in their depictions of the Iberian Peninsula. Indeed, Debussy even used the dance again in La Puerta del Vino from his second book of preludes. With the exception of two brief passages toward the conclusion of the piece, Debussy avoids the fiery flamenco-like music so often stereotypically connected with Spain. Nonetheless, in his own musical language, Debussy creates a vivid and impressive depiction of Grenada. The Spanish composer Manuel de Falla held Soirée in high regard and stated, "There is not even one measure of this music borrowed from the Spanish folklore, and yet the entire composition in its most minute details, conveys admirably Spain."
