Spanish Moors in fin de siècle Mexico: Ernesto Elorduy’s exoticist music

Gary Barnett, piano      Leonora Saavedra, lecture


Mexican composer Ernesto Elorduy (1853–1913), a white male with extensive knowledge of European culture, and yet a member of a former colonial nation, wrote a number of orientalist compositions, including the zarzuela Zulema and several piano pieces at the turn of the 19th century. Leonora Saavedra’s lecture explores the construction and commodification of “the Moors” in the Mexican fin de siècle imaginary, through Elorduy’s piano music.


 Dr. Gary Barnett will offer four of Elorduy’s rarely performed piano pieces in a short recital following the lecture:


Airam


Danza Oriental


Aziyadé


Canción Arabe
