Albéniz’s piano music generally overshadows the rest of his output. In his songs and lieder however, we find a variety of different pieces, from the salon romanza to the French impressionist-style song, alongside recited texts with piano accompaniment. The collected edition of these songs, some of them previously unpublished, sheds new light on this composer.
Tritó has published a new edition revised and updated of all the works for voice and piano of Isaac Albéniz in the year of the commemoration of his death.Albéniz was one of the most important composer in the period between Romanticism and the new music of the twentieth century in Spain. We need to expect that this new edition has the same success of the first that was appeared more than ten years ago. The first edition was published following the same style of the publication of another complete work: The Complete songs of Enric Granados. In this new edition, we may highlight the inclusion of translations of the original lyrics into English, Catalan and Castilian as well as a phonetic transcription by Oriol Gil Sanchis. The musicologist Jacinto Torres, one of the most important specialists in this composer, has expanded and updated his extensive introductory essay to the new information in this field. The volume includes five porems by Becquer for voice and piano and arrangements of these poems by Albéniz for singer and piano. The new edition also includes six living romances in Italian and four songs of French poems of modernist and symnbolist aesthetics. The body more important of this edition, is the sixteen songs with poems by the English mecenes of Albéniz, Francis B. Money-Coutts.
