Spanish inspired ballet music


Recommended Posts

Hi. I wonder if anyone could suggest some classical ballet music that has a Spanish influence. I'm not looking for a repertoire piece from any of the famous ballets but that's all I seem to be able to find when I search. Any suggestions of either the music or a good place to search would be very much appreciated. 

Thank you.

Manuel de Falla with a variety of works

Heitor Villa Lobos, Concerto for Guitar

Manuel Ponce, Concerto del Sur

Maurice Ravel, Pavane pour une infante defunte, Alborada del gracioso

Nikolai Rimsky-Korssakoff, Capriccio Espagnol


Rodrigo's Conderto de Aranjuez is superb.

Concerto d’Arenjuez? 

That is one of my favourite pieces of music.  I find it so moving,  I initially thought that it might not be upbeat but I listened to the full version and it's really fantastic.

I learnt to play "Malaguena" on the guitar, and always imagined a dancer as I played it. Do you know it's been a while but I just might get the duster out, and give it another go.


Have a look.




Oh by the way, I wasn't as good as this guy, he lost me after about a minute.
