SPANISH CONCERT

Salvador Bacarisse (1898 – 1963)

The importance of Salvador Bacarisse, a disciple of Litter del Campo in Madrid, is, in large measure, the importance of the Generation of the Republic, the culmination of a long process of revitalizing the Spanish sound art, begun in the last third of the nineteenth century and to acquire outstanding character with the foundation in 1915 by Adolfo Salazar, the National Society of Music, for broadcasting patriotic composers and new music in general; and then with the genesis and development of the Madrid group, of that poetic-musical generation, whose plethora find Bacarisse, embarked with other musicians, politicians and intellectuals, all supporters of the ephemeral Second Republic, on a large project for the regeneration of education and Spanish musical culture.

Precisely because of this ideological attachment to the Republic would Bacarisse exile in Paris after the Civil War. By then, he had won three times the National Music Award (1923, 1931 and 1934) and written as interesting works such as the piano suite Heralds, the Sonata in trio or three quartets and opera The Treasure of Boabdil, all progressive stamp.

But unlike composers Mompou, Montsalvatge Esplá or who despite not exactly be a school-and their respective languages ​​differ each other-they share a permanent aesthetic renewing concern in the work of Rodrigo shown that It will be the main trend of the Spanish music of the forties: a return to aesthetic trends of regionalism and nationalism cut purist with neoclassical forms.

Disciple of Paul Dukas in Paris, where he lived several years and which was associated with the leading figures of the time -Ravel fails, Poulenc, Honegger … – in the beginning was assimilated to the Generation of the Republic, more by their generational belonging that for purely musical reasons or school. Anyway, the truth is that from his years in France and Germany-from where he returns after the war, the style of Rodrigo will delimiting with precision. The composer Tomás Marco sums it up: «Nationalism, neoclassic forms, harmonic and orchestral simplicity that will be further reduced in subsequent years, and a superficial but attractive sound».

Although not as universal as the Concierto de Aranjuez, the Fantasy for a gentleman is one of the key works of the guitar repertoire, while significant of the Spanish music of this century concerning, occupying a place of honor in the repertoire of any guitarist of the world. It dates from 1954 and is based on the music of Gaspar Sanz.
