OB-6: Manuel de Falla: "Fisherman's Song"

Published on Sep 9, 2019 Kris Lennox

"Manuel de Falla's poignant 'Fisherman's Song' ("Récit du Pécheur"). Whilst a rarely-performed piano piece, it is a beautiful work I had planned to record on piano a while back. However, it also works well on synth (hence this recording). The hand-crossing/split octaves in the main phrase is quite unusual. Much fun to be had deciding which voice should be projected as the melody!

The range of this piece is handy for the OB-6 i.e it can be played across 4 octaves without hitting the transpose buttons. In saying that, large chunks of the keyboard repertoire can in fact be played within 4 octaves, i.e there is plenty of recordable extant repertoire that could be harnessed.

Enjoy/all best
