Notes & Reviews:

In the latest volume of this critically admired series, a number of rarely heard pieces from Albéniz's first compositional phase can be savored. They were composed between 1881 and 1892 and reveal the variety and flair of which he was capable, even in the smallest of musical forms, such as the delightful mazurkas. The Siete estudios (Seven Studies) are no mere exercises - rather they fuse the color of Iberian music with the rigor of Central European traditions. Les Saisons is an evocative portrait of the seasons and can be seen as a forerunner of the impressionistic writing that would soon appear in French music.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2014
All his performances are shot through with brilliance and conviction. And even in those piece which are over-extended and repetitious, his voltage and enthusiasm somehow carry the day.
