de Falla composed ‘La vida breve’ between 1904 and 1905 for a competition which promised to stage the winner’s opera at the Teatro Real in Madrid. De Falla won, but the opera had to wait until 1913 and undergo a long process of revision before it went on stage at the Municipal Casino in Nice. It was a resounding success. The best of the opera lies in its picturesque parts: impressions of the Spanish land, feeling for landscape, for the sky, the day, the time all envelop the characters like a subtle atmosphere: the picturesque is thus intimately bound up with the life of the drama. ‘Goyescas’ by Enrique Granados was first performed in public three years after ‘La vida breve’.       Dynamic on sale
