It remains unclear whether the invention of the bolero can be accredited back to dancers or musicians. As this dance in 1780 arose from the Seguidillas, the Spanish were already dancing to the sounds of the guitar and the rattling of the castanets. The more professional dancers, were virtuoso’s of the Bolero. Quickly, the dance had spread among the people and was declared in the second half of the 19th century to be the Spanish national dance.
The Bolero went on to conquer the whole of Europe. Interestingly, just was just French composers of the Spanish dances who were particularly inspired.
Around the most famous "Bolero", the history of this music can be found on this album, an entirely "Spanish" selection of compositions by French masters, of course, also Bizet’s "Carmen Suite", sultry music in clear form which in the editor for four guitars clearly than in other versions leads back to their starting point.
