Sheet Music: Score
Shades of the Alhambra : for clarinet, cello & piano / Wendy Hiscocks
by Wendy Hiscocks (2009)
Some compositions have a long gestation period and the initial spark of inspiration for this suite was undoubtedly triggered by a visit to the Alhambra while on holiday in Grenada many years ago. It impressed me as being the most beautiful palace I had ever seen. A reading of Washington Irving's book Tales of the Alhambra (1832) based on Moorish legends and myths associated with the Alhambra, further feulled my imagination and provided the dramatic focus for the ensuing musical scenes. A first draft of the work was completed as early as 2004 which was then revised in 2009 in readiness for its premiere in 2010.
