Chabrier's orchestral showpiece was composed in 1883 and received its premiere in November of that year in Paris under the baton of Charles Lamoreaux, founder of the now famous orchestra bearing his name. Inspired by a vacation to Spain taken the year before its composition, Espana is a superb example of the Spanish-genre showpiece - featuring driving rhythms, brilliant orchestral colors and folk-derived melodies. This new score is a reduced-sized reissue of the newly-engraved, thoroughly researched and corrected edition prepared by Clinton F. Nieweg and Nancy M. Bradburd in 2008.
