Performer, composer and teacher, Enrique Granados stood with de Falla and Albéniz as the most outstanding Spanish musician of his time. Among his dozen or so chamber works the Piano Trio and Piano Quintet, both from 1894, exemplify Granados’s highly expressive, Neo-romantic style, his piano writing revealing the hand of a virtuoso. Amiable touches of dance and salon music, hints of Moorish, gypsy and folkloric elements, co-exist in these beautiful, refined pieces. The famous Intermezzo from his opera Goyescas, an Aragonese jota, is heard here in Gaspar Cassadó’s popular arrangement.


   




Review By Giv Cornfield,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,May 2010

Here is a fine collection of chamber music that American concertgoers are not very likely to hear (unless they travel to the Old Country). This is quintessentially Spanish music, no mistaking the particular Iberian flavour that Granados and his fellow countrymen Albeniz and Turina, for example, manage to impart to this music. The artists—local boys all—play it to the hilt, and are captured in full-bodied audio in a good acoustical setting. The adaptation of the famous Intermezzo from “Goyescas” by the great cellist Gaspar Cassado is especially enjoyable.
