Marin Marais: Les Folies D'Espagne

Books | Flute

Publisher: G. Schirmer
Composer: Marin Marais
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Marais, a 17th-Century composer and Bass Viol player wrote these variations for the specific purpose of having them transcribed for other instruments. The theme they were based on was very well-known at the time, and is probably of Portugese origin but has a 'typical Spanish flavour' - evoking the proud attitude and striking stage prescence of a Spanish dancer. These twenty four short variations vary widely in character, though the interpretation of each is left largely to the performer's judgement.
