Homenaje by Manuel de Falla: influence and intertextuality in the development of the modern guitar repertoire
The present research aims to make a historical reflection on the work "Homenaje a Debussy" (08/1920) and its impact in part of the twentieth century guitar repertoire, also based on Kristeva's intertextuality concept. The purpose of this thesis is to develop a musicological study allied to the performative history of this work based on various manuscripts (collected by this research) and on the epistolary documentation exchanged between historical agents such as Manuel de Falla, Claude Debussy, Miguel Llobet, Andrés Segovia, among others.
