About

‘Cuentos de Amor’ is an album of compositions by Spanish pianist-composer Enrique Granados (1867-1916) performed by pianist Waldo Geuns (b.1981).

Granados, like Sergei Rachmaninov, was one of the last great pianistcomposers. His mastery of the piano can be seen in his compositions of exceptional virtuosity and lyricism as exemplified in ‘The Goyescas’. This piece inspired Geuns to walk in Granados’s footsteps and write his own music, using his melodies as points of departure.

Waldo trained with the pianists Jan Michiels, Hans Leygraf and Andre De Groote after which he continued to hone his craft with the Polish pianist and teacher Wieslaw Szlachta. He has already been awarded a number of prizes, including the prestigious “Mayor Paul Meyers Prize”, and is a musician in residence at Hollands College, Louvain (KU Leuven), giving lectures and recitals there every year.
