Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Enrique Granados is known for composing some of the most popular Spanish piano masterpieces. Along with these famous compositions, he also wrote a sequence of orchestral works. Marcha de los vencidos, which is the first track featured on this album, evokes the emotion of the painful march of 'the defeated' from a lost battle. This album is the first in a series to be released in honor of the centenary of the composer's death. The compositions on this album are performed by the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Pablo Gonzalez.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2016
Under its former music director Pablo Gonzlez, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra makes the most of this material, with fresh and expressive woodwind (the oboist is outstanding), bright brass and silky strings, captured in a clear recording.

Gramophone Magazine, May 2016
Under Pablo Gonzlez, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra play with style and evident affection... Hispanophiles should certainly hear this, though it'll appeal to anyone who enjoys neglected late Romantic music of the Karlowicz, Alfven or Fibich variety.
