Product Description

In 1912 Mexican composer Manuel M. Ponce traveled to Aguascalientes on vacation and spent an evening looking at the starry night. This inspired him to compose the words and music for the song, "Estrellita" (Star of Love/Little Star/Petit Astre/Stellina).  The text Star from far away, you know about my love and my suffering has been speculated by many that these lyrics are Ponces sentimental expressions for his beloved Mexico as a little star Because I cannot live without his love. Or, it is widely held that the lovely melody of "Estrellita" came to Ponce in a moment of inspiration while spending a romantic evening with his wife either scenario could be true.  In 1923 violinist Jascha Heifetz was in Mexico City and realized he didnt have any work by a Mexican composer on his program.  While in a café, he heard a local musician sing the popular song "Estrellita" and noted its title on a napkin. "Estrellita" became one of his favorite encore songs ever since. Scored for solo violin, tenor and piano this trio runs 2:59.
