Program Notes

La Boda de Luis Alonso (The Wedding of Luis Alonso, also known by the alternate title La noche del encierno (The Cloistered Night) dates from 1897 and is Giménez's most famous work. The stunning intermezzo is a veritable fiesta of Spanish dance rhythms, with its fandango and zapateado (heel and toe dance) rhythms , and colorful Iberian instrumentation including tambourine and castanets. It is one of the bets and most familiar excerpts from the zarzuela repertoire, often performed separately as a concert selection. While not so identified on the published score, we believe this wind adaptation to have been prepared by the composer.
