Program Notes

Suspiros de España (literally, "sighs of Spain") was written in the Spanish city of Cartagena in 1902. Although written as an instrumental march, it later became popular to add lyrics (often different versions) by major Spanish popular singers. It is a "pasodoble," a type of Spanish popular march that literally translates as "two-step." The music is infused with Spanish-tinged melodies, harmonies, and rhythms.
