about

Spanish Dance, Op. 21 No. 2 – Habanera Sarasate (1844–1908)

Pablo de Sarasate was a Spanish celebrity, welcomed internationally by huge crowds when he arrived in cities to perform throughout Europe, Africa, the Far East and the Americas. His real trademark was that he made very difficult music look effortless. George Bernard Shaw said that Sarasate “left criticism gasping miles behind him”. Prominent composers of his time (Wieniawski, Saint-Saëns and Lalo) dedicated works to him. Sarasate’s own compositions are mainly showpieces designed to show off his outstanding technique. Sarasate’s Habanera is like a capricious conversation between a man and woman dancing. He draws on the characteristic syncopated Cuban rhythms of Havana, a style thought to have been brought by sailors to his country, where the Habanera became established as a popular Spanish dance adopted by all classes of society in the late 19th century.
