De Falla: Homenaje: Le Tombeau De Claude Debussy

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: CH02086
Artist: Manuel De Falla
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

In 1920, a Parisian magazine asked several leading composers to compose musical tributes to the famous French musician Claude Debussy, who had died in 1918. The great Spanish composer Manuel De Falla (1876-1946) was one of them: having met Debussy in Paris, he had been heavily influenced by the French impressionists. His Homenaje (Homage) was his only work for solo Guitar, although it was arranged by the composer for solo Piano almost immediately. It is widely regarded as one of the masterpieces of early 20th century music – at only three minutes in length, it is often said it has twenty minutes’ worth of music contained within it.
