May 29 – Andalouse by Émile Pessard

Émile Pessard was born on this day in 1843. Pessard was mainly known for his operas and masses and the Andalouse certainly employs the composer’s familiar, singing style. The piece was originally written as part of a collection of 25 works for piano but lends itself easily to performances that include a soloist playing the beautiful melody. The title probably refers to the Andalucia region of southern Spain.
