detail of page

Colección “Facsímiles”, Serie “Manuscritos”, 1. Granada, 1997. Oblong, 25 x 17 cm, xiii, 168 pp. 3-color halftone of Falla’s fascinating autograph piano reduction score of his celebrated one-act opera “Life is Short”. With this work the composer won the 1905 composition prize of the Real Academia de Bellas Artes. The manuscript reproduced here represents the closest version to the prize-winning version; the additions in red ink and pencil corrections show the beginning of the transformation that the opera would take in its premiere and publication years later. An indispensable source with many precious details for the study of the earliest important work of Falla. Linen. $99
