Los Niños Zapateros (The Shoemaker’s Children) (sheet music)
I once read a novel about a poor Zapatero (Shoemaker, Cobbler) that lost his wife to the plague and had to support his family by having his small children work hard making and repairing shoes in his workshop.
The novel moved me and inspired me to this composition. It is thought to be a part of my “Estampas” (Images) suite picturing everyday life in Spain. Los Niños Zapateros has an impressionistic style not heard so often in my pieces. Less “obvious” but more “deep”, if you like.
In A-Minor and standard tuning.
