Notes & Reviews:

The seventh volume in this acclaimed series is devoted to two works of Albéniz's early maturity. The 12 Piezas características is a cycle of exquisite miniatures encompassing a wide variety of styles, including the assimilation of Andalusian folk music into his own personal idiom, reminiscences of earlier greats such as Scarlatti and Chopin, and elements of 19th c. salon music. The work led Felipe Pedrell, the father of Spanish musical nationalism, to call Albéniz not only a superbly equipped pianist but a great composer as well. The romantic and virtuosic Piano Sonata No. 3 opens with a richly contrapuntal Allegretto, followed by a slow movement of the utmost delicacy in the manner of a romanza and concludes with a technically complex Allegro assai.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The short Sonata 3 dates from 1886 and is in three boldly romantic movements. Once again it is full of subtleties, somewhat virtuosic, and would make a wonderful addition to concert programs. Spanish-born Hernan Milla, making his recorded debut in this series, is a wonderful pianist. Both notes and recorded sound are good.
