Notes & Reviews:

Michel Block (1937-2003) gained international attention and fame when at the 1960 Chopin Competition jury member Artur Rubinstein was so outraged by the jury decision that he awarded Michel Block the special Artur Rubinstein Award on the spot. Two years later Michel Block, a Juilliard laureate, won the prestigious Leaventritt Award and then embarked on an international solo career. After joining the faculty of Indiana University, Block ceased his busy concert schedule and his rare public appearances after that were memorable events. Block had a special affinity for Spanish music (he grew up in Mexico). This recital offers gems from the Spanish repertoire including Granados' Spanish Dances, Albeniz's España and the four Spanish Pieces by De Falla.
