Distinguished cellist Andrew Smith’s interest in Spanish music was awakened by his collaboration with Spanish pianist and conductor Alfredo Oyágüez Montero beginning in 1999. This artistic partnership led to a programme of all-Spanish works, which they have performed to great acclaim on tour worldwide.

The album features music by several of Spain’s greatest composers: Manuel de Falla, Enrique Granados, Joaquin Turina, and Xavier Montsalvatge. Perhaps less familiar is Gaspar Cassadó, who – after the great Pablo Casals (his teacher) – was Spain’s most famous 20th-century cellist. Prime examples of both his original compositions and his many arrangements are heard here, along with a lovely folk song transcription from Casals.

This glowing release promises to be a rare treat for cello fans and Spanish music aficionados alike – and will convincingly demonstrate the cello’s affinity with the unique spirit and piquant flavors of the Spanish musical idiom.
