The Franco-Spanish soprano Inés Lorans (winner of the 2022 Logroño International Singing Competition) presents a delightful program reflecting the influence of Spanish music in one of the great cultural hubs of the 19th century: Paris. The arrival of significant figures such as the García family (especially the great influence of Pauline Viardot), the Basque Sebastian Yradier, or the Catalan guitarist Fernando Sor filled the salons of the time with boleros, tiranas, seguidillas, habaneras, etc., captivating French musicians. Moreover, this impact led them to create a bucolic image, characterized by rhythmic sensuality with Orientalist tints from the Iberian Peninsula, which influenced a large number of works by Gounod, Massenet, Bizet, Ibert, Saint-Saëns, Ravel, Collet, and many others. Let’s recall how Bizet himself “adopted” a catchy song by Yradier called “El arreglito” and used it for his famous Habanera from Carmen.
