We present to you this first edition by Trito of "Pepita Jiménez" by Albéniz that was edited by l. This edition is based on the third publication of the score and voice and piano book made by Breitkopf in 1904 and premiered in 1905. "In Pepita Jiménez, Albéniz sought to create Spanish national opera through an amalgamation of three major trends in contemporary musical theater: use of regional folkloric elements, a practice borrowed from zarzuela; a Pucciniesque lyricism in which the orchestra frequently reinforces the voice; and Wagnerian musico-dramatic innovations, including con tinuous musical commentary in the orchestra infused with musical references to places and people in the manner of leitmotiv. Although he steered clear of any overt political statement, his incorporation of foreign style elements into this ônationalö opera reflected his cosmopolitan philosophy and belief that Spain should embrace a progressive outlook receptive to foreign influence. As he put it, Spanish composers ought to ômake Spanish music with a universal accent.ö Albéniz’s ôinternationalö nationalism would reach its apogee in his Iberia collection for piano ten years later, with its French Impressionist color and mood."
