Hello I'm wondering if someone can help me find the story's to the El decameron negro, which book by Leo frobenius are they in?
I purchased the black decameron by Leo frobenius but can't seem to see anyway mentioning the names of the movements? Is it in this book or another??
Many many thanks to whoever can help me.
Last year I had to write an essay/class presentation on Leo Brouwer, and one of the pieces I exposed was Decameron Negro. I found on many thesis and articles that Brouwer never stated that the movements were literally based on any of their stories.
My master, Victor Villadangos, told me he read all the book and didn't find any correlation between the movements and the story context of the pieces.
The first movement "El arpa del guerrero" (Warrior's Harp) should state that there was a harp.. my professor never find a harp in the book, only some stringed instruments as he recalls but never and harp. Also found some stories of lovers but never a story were two lovers run from their village on a horse through an echo valley.
It seems that Brouwer only based the context of the suite on the book, but didn't recreate literally any story.
