Francis Poulenc in France - 1932

from Selected correspondence 1915-1963 / Francis Poulenc, page 96:

Your music, which I have always loved, evokes Spain so vividly for me (just as Debussy's does France) that often in the evening, to the sound of the gramophone, my thoughts wander towards the Calle Darro, the Albaicín and the Generalife gardens of Granada.
