Program Notes

La Caleta is a popular beach in the city of Cádiz in Spain, where yearly festivals are held. Fiesta en La Caleta was first published in Texidor’s compilation of Alegrias No. 16. The Alegrias series was a yearly publication from 1928 to 1956, written for Spanish military bands that included about ten to fifteen of Texidor’s original compositions in various musical formats (boleros, polkas, tangos, foxtrots, pasodobles, etc.). Very few examples of the series survive today, but many of Texidor’s popular pasodobles debuted within these publications, some of them returning as second or even third editions. The first publication of the Alegrias series was in 1928, making the earliest date of publication for Alegrias No. 16 during 1943, but due to World War II, it is possible that the publication was delayed until 1945, as Alegrias No. 21 was released in 1950, with Fiesta en La Caleta receiving its 2nd edition release.

Fiesta en La Caleta would prove to become very popular in Spain, but it was never published outside of its home country. To date, there has been no European or American adaption of this fantastic pasodoble.
