About

Just as Albéniz did in his concert programmes, this recording alternates pieces in Spanish style with some of the entertaining salon miniatures written for Spain’s aristocracy during the last two decades of the 19th century.

The Suite ancienne reflects Albéniz’s delight in creating personal versions of 18th-century dances, while echoes of Chopin and Grieg lurk behind the themes of the Sonata No.5.

Rêves is a work of great expressive intensity, the Serenata árabe is more recognizably Albéniz, and the Tres improvisaciones are a transcription of the only recording ever made by the composer.

World premiere recordings of:
- Balbina Valverde: Polka brillante
- Cadiz-Gaditana
- Diva sin par: Mazurca-Capricho
