Notes & Reviews:

Revered as one of the greatest Spanish composers for the piano, Enrique Granados also wrote a wide-ranging body of orchestral music. His one-act opera Goyescas contains an intensely lyrical Intermezzo that is his most popular work and one of the best-loved pieces in all Spanish music. The gypsy-tinged orientalism of Danza de los ojos verdes and Danza gitana contrast with the somber and epic La nit del mort and the ambitious large-scale symphonic poem Dante, one of the most significant Spanish orchestral works of its time. This is the second in a series commemorating the centenary of Granados' death. Volume 1 is on 8573263.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
The first section [of La nit del mort] shows González and his orchestra at their best, with grainy strings, piquant soft-edged woodwinds and a natural, musicianly way of shaping a phrase... the slightly hazy Naxos sound complements performances that are affectionate and characterful.

MusicWeb International, 6th June 2016
A fascinating opportunity to encounter a composer better known for his music for solo piano.
