In 1896 Giménez premiered his zarzuela 'El baile de Luis Alonso' with
some success. But the orchestral Intermedio was remembered much after
the rest of the zarzuela was somewhat forgotten. It is built around three
popular tunes of Andalusian origin and it is one of the most interpreted
pieces of the zarzuela repertoire.
