Lila Larinova


Enrique Granados was born 27 July 1867 in Lérida, near Barcelona. The son of an army captain, he began piano lessons in 1879, continuing in 1880 with Joan Baptista Pujol (1835-1898) at the Academia Pujol. Three years later he performed Schumann’s Sonata, Op. 22, in an academy-sponsored competition, for which one of the jury members was the noted composer Felipe Pedrell (1841-1922). The sixteen-year-old Granados won the competition and obviously impressed Pedrell, who began giving Granados lessons in harmony and composition in 1884.

In 1887 Granados went to Paris, where he studied with Charles de Bériot (1833-1914). He was highly influenced by Bériot’s insistence on tone-production and pedal technique. In addition, Bériot emphasized improvisation in his teaching, reinforcing Granados’ natural ability. After returning to Barcelona in 1889, he published his Danzas españolas, which brought him international recognition.

As a performer Granados gave many concerts in Spain, France and New York, collaborating with musicians such as Isaac Albéniz and Pablo Casals, violinists Eugène Ysäye and Jacques Thibaud, pianists Mieczyslaw Horszowski and Camille Saint-Saëns. As a composer, he wrote chamber music, vocal music, operas, symphonic poems and piano works. Granados was also a fine teacher and in 1901 he founded the Academia Granados, which produced many notable musicians, such as Paquita Madriguera, Conchita Badia and Frank Marshall.
