Unlike his four compatriots,however, committed to the development of Spanishmusical nationalism, Turina created his own personalmusical world.

Like the painter Joaquin Sorolla, whoselight-filled works took their inspiration from local scenes,Turina borrowed and reworked traditional elements inorchestral works such as Sinfonia sevillana and Laprocesion del Rocio, armed with the rigorous technicalcommand zambra turina at the conservative Paris ScholaCantorum, under Moritz Moszkowski and Vincentd'Indy, while making use of his own notable talents as apianist.
