Turina's popular Danzas fantásticas was written for solo piano in 1919, soon thereafter orchestrated by the composer. The set of three dances was inspired by the novel La orgia by José Mas, and a quotation from the text preceded each dance in the score. For the third movement, Orgia, the inscription read, "The perfume of the flowers merged with the odor of manzanilla, and from the bottom of raised glasses, full of the incomparable wine, like an incense, rose joy." Paul Bhasin has crafted a virtuoso arrangement for brass and percussion, to add spice to any program.

Animal Pictures

Animal Pictures (20 Piano Pieces)
By Rudolph Ganz
Piano Solo

Carl Fischer Music
O2221  –  Score  –  $26.99
See sample pages (PDF)

Ganz was a major force in modern music of the early 20th century in the United States. He was the first to perform Ravel's piano music in America, brought the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra to the top tier under his baton, and taught at Juilliard before it was Juilliard (The Institute of Musical Art). His love of piano pedagogy, particularly in new techniques, is illustrated by this charming set of 20 animal-inspired pieces for students, young and old. Originally published by Carl Fischer Music in 1932, these descriptive miniatures still speak to us today.
