Notes & Reviews:

Highly esteemed in his lifetime, though sadly neglected since, Tomas Breton built an enviable reputation on the ten theatrical works he composed between 1875 and 1896, the evocative 'Preludes', four of which are included on this disc. In his popular 'Escenas andaluzas' (Andalusian Scenes) he evokes all the sunshine and colour of southern Spain, while 'En la Alhambra' celebrates the fabulous red-stoned Moorish palace near Granada. Breton's 'Piano Trio in E major' and 'Four Spanish Pieces' are available on Naxos 8570713.
