Program Notes

Habanera is the feminine form of the Spanish noun habanero, meaning "from Havana."


Originally for piano, the Habanera was transcribed for orchestra by the composer for a concert Chabrier conducted in 1888. The piano version was the first to be published (1885). The orchestral version, which is transposed up to D, was not issued until 1889. The Habanera is a fine example of the Spanish genre which was so popular in the works of French composers in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
