Program Notes

Souvenirs d'Andalousie RO 242, is subtitled “Caprice de Concert”. It was republished in 1973 by Dover in the compilation “Piano Music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk.”

A note on the cover of the score indicates (in part) that this piece was improvised at a concert in Madrid on 16 December 1851. It uses three traditional dance patterns and tunes–the fandango, cana, and jaleo de Jerez. The most famous theme is the fandango which was also used by Glinka in his Capricio Brillante on the Jota Aragonesa (1845) and in modern times by Ernesto Lecuona as the basis for his Malagueña
