Notes

  • Program notes: 

    “Telésfora Coria or Castillo [nicknamed Telesita] was born [in Santiago del Estero, Argentina]. She was a young woman of singular beauty, she loved to dance and her goodness and modesty were amazing. One day she stopped frequenting her friends’ ranches and, after looking for her, someone found her burnt body inside a humble hovel […]. The cult to her memory spread […] and she started to be addressed by people so she could intercede to find lost animals and objects, gain loves that seemed impossible, etc. […]. When the request is fulfilled, to show gratitude, a dance or ‘telesiada’ is celebrated.” (Félix & Susana B. Coluccio, ‘Diccionario folklórico argentino’, 1994). Juan Manuel Abras used a fragment of the famous chacarera ‘La Telesita’, composed by Andrés Chazarreta, as the theme for composing the concert variations for piano and symphony orchestra entitled ‘Telesiadas’.
