Just an observation on this Burgalesa:
In "The Segovia-Ponce Letters", in a letter dated 20 July 1927, Segovia writes --
"I have put the piecettes of Torroba into my fingers, among which is an andante, composed of two marvelous burgalesas, which have made me to think about what you would have done with them...."
So this prompts some discussion points. First, these are clearly two separate works which have been conjoined. Segovia did the same with two "Songs for the Young by Robert Schumann, which he combined as "Romanza", and also a pair of minuets by Handel which he reclassified as a single piece "Allegretto grazioso". Second, the comment "what you would have done with them...." suggests that these maybe are not entirely original, but are harmonizations of existing songs from the city of Burgos. Torroba used an existing folksong for the middle part of "Fandanguillo" in Suite Castellana, so there's precedent for doing this again with this work.
No answers, just questions.
