Notes

Canciones (literally ‘songs’) is based on four early poems of Federico Garcia Lorca from the collection of the same title. The poems date from around 1920 and are very much immersed in the folk-like elements of southern Spain. The texts are simple, at times child-like and full of imagery and character.

The work was commissioned by Simon Limbrick and Janis Kelly through the Greater London Arts Association and first performed by them at the Wigmore Hall in the summer of 1983.
