Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Ramiro is a Spaniard and has reached the ripe old age of 30 as of this writing. He is both a teacher and a performer and, like so many of today's players, has the ability to play and interpret this music. The remaining pieces are nicely put together and played with enthusiasm. The pianist's own notes are very good, and the sound is clear.

Just as Albéniz did in his concert programmes, this recording alternates pieces in Spanish style with some of the entertaining salon miniatures written for Spain's aristocracy during the last two decades of the 19th century. The Suite ancienne reflects Albéniz's delight in creating personal versions of 18th-century century dances, while echoes of Chopin and Grieg lurk behind the themes of the Sonata No. 5. The Rêverie is a work of great expressive intensity, the Serenata árabe is more recognizably Albéniz, and the Tres improvisaciones are a transcription of the only recording ever made by the composer.
