Havaneres De Concert
The first recording project of the Fundation, Havaneres de Concert, coordinated by the “habanera” researcher Ms. Teresa Pérez Daniel, is an accurate selection of the best “habaneras” of concert from Catalan and Cuban authors such as Xavier Montsalvatge, Ignacio Cervantes, Ernesto Lecuona, Isaac Albéniz or Eduardo Sánchez de Fuentes.
The CD collects compositions for solo instruments, the piano, or the singing piano alternation, poliphony, instrumentation and in the specific case of the “habaneras”, for the piano as the favourite accompaniament and a way to express a musical thinking. The work helps us to understand the origin of the “habanera” which was firstly considered a danceable genre to become, later on, a genre to be sung and danced after undergoing several evolutionary processes and, finally, acquiring the singing function it has got now.
