La Oracion del torrero para cuarteto de cuerda. In the pantheon of 20th century Spanish composers: I. Albeniz M. De Falla E. Granados and the Catalan F. Mompou Joaquin Turina was the only one to devote a considerable part of his compositional talents to chamber music. Like each of the aforementioned composers he lived and studied music in Paris where he was encouraged by the likes of Dâ€™Indy Ravel and Debussy. In this brief tone poem for string quartet La OraciÃ³n del Torero 'The Bullfighterâ€™s Prayer' the influence of Debussy can be heard especially in the use of lush descending parallel ninth chords. The influence of music of the Andalusian Gypsies is also quiteevident. This piece became one of the composerâ€™s most popular works often performed in an arrangement for string orchestra.
