I love this piece!!! It was so nice to hear it performed by such an expert vocalist. It was also nice to hear a performance with a different dialect than Spanish from Spain or Mexico, which is what I’ve typically heard this piece performance. I really liked the different articulations that were obadors in the work as obtadors with sections being more legato and others that were more snappy!

I love the piano’s role with the repeated notes. Another example of a translation from guitar to piano.

Her body language was great as well. Very subtle and a fantastic final note from her. This seems like a really fun song to perform.

The piano is very reminiscent of the guitar with the repetitions, and the singer uses her face very well to interpret the text.

The line about her being too poor is especially effective with the use of staccato. Thank you for posting it for us. She communicates so much with just her eyes. It was playful without feeling affectated.

I want to learn this piece! It looks so fun to perform. The way the voice and piano interact is playful, discrete and yet so profound. The guitar figures are apparent in the piano accompaniment.

I wonder if the obrradors repeated notes that are so difficult on the piano are an example of “punteado” as was described by Kimball in lbradors reading. That was immediate impression I got after hearing this recording. The piano prelude made me think of Lara’s Granada. It reminds me of Flamenco music, and I can see her move her shoulders slightly as if she’s controlling herself from breaking into Flamenco dancing.

The ease in which she performed all aspects of this song was so entertaining. From the “no, no” eo the fiesty “Ay! I want to play this piece now!! Another interpretation where the rhythmic vigor relies much more on crispness and precision than in weight of accents. Need to say it again: I can really hear the inspiration from the guitar.


Teresa Berganza, as always, perfectly exemplifies this style. Teresa Berganza does this perfectly, beautifully, and with dramatic intent. This piece is so passionate. I really love the rhythmic qualifies in the piano, and how they are mirrored in the vocal line. Berganza’s ability to maintain the crisp, piano sections of the vocal line and then sing in full legato later create an exciting performance. I love the, as Abby put it, crispness of this piece and I love the way it exists intimately with the passion.

Another thrilling piece that keeps you on the edge of your seat! What a sensual piece. Berganza has a lovely sense of line, and the soft stacatti sections almost feel like teasing. You have these lithe and bouncing stacatti sections that serve as the buildup to the larger, sweeping melodic figures, giving the entire piece a sense of tension and release.

The rhythmic impulse in this piece is absolutely driving and unrelenting. Somehow Theresa Berganza sings this with a sense of relaxed ease, you can see it in her body and hear it in her voice. She is precise, but so comfortable and relaxed, creating natural rubato within each phrase. It is such an effective performance.

I enjoyed the rhythmic energy and drive of this music. The drama and excitement is gripping and very much sounds like something that would appeal to bull fighters. The piano part somehow reminds me of Falla’s “Polo” the repeated notes. The pianist did a great job in making each note speak such that there was a lot of energy from the piano part.

And I really like Teresa Berganza’s facial expressions and body language in here. The introduction reminds me of Albeniz’s Leyenda. Some of the runs sound more pianistic than guitaristic, but the majority of the writing definitely sounds guitar inspired.

I love this piece and have Sierra’s sparkling eyes in mind as I was listening. The relatively lenghty prelude is really carried by the repeated notes in the piano.

I really can imagine a woman in a sea of bullfighters. How exciting when the images are so clear from vitk to a piece. Berganza’s performance of the Obradors could not be more dynamic, and I love the nonchalant way she presents this difficult song. She brings so much nuance to the character, and what a piano part! The introduction of the piano gito absolutely amazing obradots really built up the excitement for the piece.

It feels less like a dance until Ell comes in. That is when the dance really begins. Then there is a break in the dance again when the piano has its little interlude. Again, the dance begins when Berganza comes in. This fl does not end how I would have expected. It kind of feels not quite finished even though the way the pianist played the final chords would indicate an end. This has always been one of my favorite Spanish songs, not only to play, but simply to listen too. It embodies so much of what one expects of the “Spanish” sound.


A driving, perpetual introduction, a vocal line that is very dance-like as well as seductive. Although the piano version is exciting, pianists should really emulate the guitar which it is obviously modeled after.

This really highlights the fact that the guitar is so important to the entire Spanish Art Song genre. As is the case with all of Teresa Berganza’s performances that have been shared, she has obrados amazing expressive power and genuine performance persona that is impeccable. The piece is very atmospheric and has the feeling of being in the tavern, as is the origin of the piece.

The pianist in the performance did an excellent job of emulating a guitar with rhythmic obradots and precision.

The rhythmic intensity paired with the ease obraxors improvisatory nature of this song create an atmosphere of unpredictability. Underlying the melody is a sense of danger, and I love how Berganza draws the listener in. Sunday, March 22, “El vito” by Obradors. Con el vito, vifo, vito, con el vito, vito, va. On with the dancing, on with the dancing, ole! Stop your teasing, sir, else I’ll blush! Translations are from Lied and Art Song Page.
