Chamber Music - Albéniz & Granados

Isaac Albéniz (1860 - 1909)
Enrique Granados (1867 - 1916)

Both Granados and Albéniz are associated with Spanish Nationalism but in fact they went further in their impact to the music influencing the piano playing technique.

The most important chamber works by Granados were his trio and quintet, twice included in this CD. Albéniz started to write Azulejos shortly before his death. Granados finshed his work. Probably the composer wanted write a suite in which Azulejos was the prologue.

All the works in this album are published by Tritó with the exception of Azulejos, which was recently published in an excellent edition by the Biblioteca de Catalunya.

The exquisite performance by the Orchestra of Cadaqués soloists Santiago Juan and Cristian Benito (violins), Alejandro Garrido (viola) and Marius Diaz (cello) and the pianist Jean Bernard Pommier, makes this album an exquisite product.

The CD features the musicological notes by the specialist in Granados, Douglas Riva.

Disco recomendado

"Pommiere interpreta amb exquisidesa melòdica i atmosferes de colors velats. El pianista la concep amb una filiació raveliana sense artificis, senzilla i balsàmica."

This performance is amazing! A very meticulous recording and a great performance.

Una interpretació impecable. Gran Pommier, com sempre.
