Notes & Reviews:

The newest installment in the CHANDOS La Musica de Espana series with the BBC Philharmonic and chief conductor Juanjo Mena explores the music of Isaac Albeniz, one of the greatest Spanish composers to have ever lived. This album includes his Piano Concerto No 1 'Concierto fantastico', Suite espanola, Rapsodia espanola, and Suite from "The Magic Opal." The featured soloist for the Piano Concerto and Rapsodia espanola is British pianist Martin Roscoe, who has already been critically praised for his previous recordings on the CHANDOS label.

Mena's BBC Phil is on exemplary form.

BBC Music Magazine, July 2016
The Rapsodia espanola, which also features Roscoe as soloist, is dreamily seductive before spiritedly bouncing along. The Suite espanola is equally fun... 'Castilla' and 'Sevilla' have great flair, 'Granada' is sublime and 'Aragon' rounds off an enjoyable disc with Tlan.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2016
Martin Roscoe's performances are of exceptional skill and affection while the BBC Philharmonic under Juanjo Mena, finely recorded, play with a suitably heated, open-hearted commitment.
