Year of composition
With the concept of “courting”, synonym of praise and admiration, the composer Chano Montes has dedicated this piece to Andalusia and its people. Andalusian Courting is a chain of tender phrases expressed in a simple and vehement melodic line, like the people that inspired it, passionate and generous.
The introduction describes an Andalusian landscape at dawn. As the poetic text expresses in the version for voice and piano, it describes the valleys as a sea of vines and song, its waters a turquoise blue, land of poets like a jewel of wheat fields and orange blossom, muses and music….and mother of so many peoples that sing of it in their verse.
The emotional performance on the guitar by the maestro Carles Trepat is a compendium of sensitivity and temperament which the prestigious player imprints on the work, uniting with the sentiments of the composer towards the Andalusia that they both love.
