Malagueña y Habanera, for violin & piano, Op. 21 (Danzas Españolas Nos. 1 & 2)
Apparently he picked up the violin and played a passage of music perfectly his father had been struggling to play for a long time. He began studying the violin with his father at the age of five and later took lessons from a local teacher. Later, as his abilities developed, he was sent to study under Jean-Delphin Alard at the Paris Conservatoire at the age of twelve.
There, at seventeen, Sarasate entered a competition for the Premier Prix and won his first prize, the Conservatoire’s highest honour. There was not another Spanish violinist to achieve this until Manuel Quiroga did so in ; Quiroga was frequently compared to Sarasate throughout his career.
Sarasate, who had been publicly performing since childhood, made his Paris debut as a concert violinist inand played in London the following year.
Over the course of his career, he toured many parts of the world, performing in EuropeNorth Americaand South America. His artistic pre-eminence was due principally to the purity habansra his tone, which was free from any tendency towards the sentimental or rhapsodic, and to that impressive facility of execution that made him a virtuoso.
The popularity of Sarasate’s Spanish flavour in his compositions is reflected in the work of his contemporaries. Of Sarasate’s idiomatic writing for his instrument, the hwbanera and music critic George Bernard Shaw once declared zarasate though there were many composers of music for the violin, there were but few composers of violin music.
Of Sarasate’s talents as performer and composer, Shaw said that he “left criticism gasping miles behind him”.
