Artist: Albeniz / Duo Van Dua
Format: CD

More Info:

Albéniz's distinctive musical vocabulary, with it's sensual harmonies, rich melodic lines and characteristic rhythmic figures, has ensured lasting popularity, not least in his music for the piano. This album of four-hand piano music reveals the composer's love of Spain's regional music traditions, whether in the glittering sweep of the SuiteespañolaNo.1or in the Rapsodia Española where a hypnotic dreamscape meets dramatic outbursts. Two movements from Iberia- one of which is a rarely encountered arrangement by the great Spanish pianist Alicia de Larrocha - reveal a daring modernity that aligns Albéniz with Debussy and Ravel.
