Granados: Goyescas; El Pelele / Nikita Magaloff, piano

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
These are magical creations, intimate and evocative, and Mr. Magaloff plays them with a sensitiveness that rises to quiet nobility in the middle section of El amor y el muerte (the coda to this piece quotes a longish section of the much better known Lover and the Nightingale). The recording is first-rate.

Sunday Times
Cherishable for articulation as vigorous as it is fine, poetry inseparable from intelligence, and a contained, attractive, unclamorous sound...A handful of ideas is constantly revisited - the effect a hypnosis that makes one avid for life.

Fanfare Magazine, November/December 2012
The Granados recording, which I believe makes its debut on CD, is also very fine. Here, it is hard not to be won over by Magaloff's mastery of the idiomatic writing, not to mention his technical proficiency, which makes child's play of Granados's bravura writing. The recordings were taped in monaural sound, but the quality is still very impressive. Highly recommended.
