Notes & Reviews:

The inspiration for Enrique Granados' Goyescas was the Madrid of Goya's time, which the painter immortalized with his marvelous palette of colors. It is - along with Iberia by Isaac Albéniz - one of the two great solo piano cycles of Spanish music. It represents both the peak of Granados' career as composer and performer and his most important contribution to the classical repertoire as a whole. On this Mirare recording, Spanish pianist Luis Fernando Péres connects with his roots in performances that bring out the myriad colors in Granados' fascinating score.

The other work included is the set of Poetic Waltzes. It is a quaint and delightful program opener, cycling through an array of moods and textures like a Spanish vision of Schumann's Papillons.
