Some time ago I was writing stories with some guitar background music on my phones. I came across a charming little piece called Danza de los Nayades by Jose Ferrer Esteve de Fujadas that I like to share with you.
Ferrer dedicated most of his compositions to the ladies, just like this case, the piece is dedicated to his pupil Thérèsita Wurgler. The lady has disappeared in the mist of time, yet this charming memento has survived the ages.
Naiades are water nymphs from Greek Mythology that were responsible for the purity of the freshwater wells. According to the stories they regularly dance in the moonlight, which yield the romantic background image of this piece.
The piece itself consists of an Introduction and a Mazurka, that at its turn is built-up from two corner sections in E minor that flank the E major middle section. The piece offers ample opportunity to play with colors and the little elegant ornaments. Technically it is not super-demanding and you have a nice piece as the result of your efforts. Attention to the fingering and make it yourself easy!
