Notes & Reviews:

Think of Albeniz piano works and the four-volume "Suite Iberia" immediately comes to mind, a work that alone made his reputation. But together with this impressive example of creative maturity, we find early works, dating mostly from the 1880's that have rarely been performed, let alone recorded. Most of the works presented on this CD were composed during his long stay in Paris and have been chronologically arranged. In these pieces (including his delightful tribute to the sparkling drink) we find him moving from the Romanticism of the period to the beginnings of Impressionism. The last work on the disc, "Souvenirs," is perhaps the closest to the maturity of "Iberia." In it, we find the "genuine" Albeniz who is able to paint landscapes with delicate and original harmonies and colors.
