For more information on the subject please refer to the following books: I hope that you have gained some prekudio about this incredible composition. But, we know as a fact that Gloria Zevan was with him at the moment of his death in August, in El Salvador. This was his birthplace and it is said that after spending some time out of the city he came back to his home town and went to the cathedral.

It is said, he was sick at the time and he was staying at the hotel ctedral was really close to the Cathedral at Montevideo.

The real motive for writing this movement is unknown. Generally, this kind of music was highly regarded by listeners, it was considered intellectual music. Regardless of the motivations for writing this movement, I believe we all agree that this prelude just enhanced the beauty of this incredible composition. He was a great admirer of J. Some argue the motive was a kind of sadness he had experience because of the death of his wife his sentimental partner since we have no records of his marriage Gloria Silva Zevan according to some authors.



Also, as mentioned before, his woman at the time had died and he saudaxe to write the prelude as a grief or mourning song. This concludes my little research of this magnificent composition. To my surprise, the information found on the subject is diverse.

Also, it clearly adds to the marks of religiousness and spirituality portrayed in the suite.

The differences found are related to places and motives for writing the composition. I believe that knowing the circumstances, motives and historical background in which a song was written can and should make saydade difference in your performance.

There is one belief that it was written because of financial problems and another that Barrios was suffering from a kind of depression that lead him to catedal the prelude. Several concert programs from Habana, Cuba and El Salvador witness this fact. It was intended to portray the beauty and the extravaganza of the Baroque period. Many believe that because of these circumstances he decided to write this as a totally separate work.

So far, a pretty straight forward compilation of details; now the question, where are the differences in the accounts? So I decided to start reading and researching about the song.

The story said that he was able to hear the bells of the church from his hotel room and that was his inspiration for the composition. Bach works and he was one of the first guitarists to have performed a whole Lute Suite No.

On a different note, you may be saudae about the style of the suite. This is why we can hear a clear contrapuntist style in the different movements and sections of this masterpiece.

Amir April 16, at 8: So what I want to do, is share some information and historical background of this composition. While sauddae in his sublime experience he walks out of the church and was shocked by all the chaos outside the walls of the church.

One of the main differences that we find in the account is in regards to which cathedral he used as an inspiration for the composition. It is by these two movements that he described his experience with the Cathedral. Therefore, they argue the name of this cathedral was wrong if this was Barrios source prelydio inspiration.

This is information I retrieved from interviews, written documents and blogs from some of the most dedicated professors, performers and historians sauvade the music of Agustin Barrios. It is said that this composition was Barrios tribute to Bach.
