Letter from Manuel de Falla to Francis Poulenc, Granada, 26 September 1929. When Falla received the score of Poulenc's Trio he wrote to Poulenc: I was overjoyed to receive the Trio - MY TRIO!- so eagerly awaited. I like it so much that, at the very first opportunity, we will perform it in Seville (keeping the piano part for myself, of course)...Many thanks, dear friend, for the joy your music brings me, and for dedicating tour Trio to me, of which I am nobly proud. (Unpublished letter dated 12 January 1927).
