Isaac Albéniz

May 29, 1860 - May 18, 1909
born in Camprodón, Lérida, Spain, composed during the Romantic period
Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909) was the first widely recognized Spanish composer of the nationalistically splintered post-Romantic period. His use of Spanish rhythms and harmonies in his music paved the way for Granados, de Falla, and others who would shortly follow in his footsteps. The most popular, and many say most important, of his works is Iberia, a suite in four books describing different regions of Spain. Albéniz was a brilliant pianist, earning praise from an early age, so most of his compositions were for that instrument, but given the flavor of his writing, it is almost as frequently heard transcribed for guitar. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi

I am afraid I've never heard of I. Albeniz his music is very unusual and yet mesmerizing to her on piano. If it was done on guitar it probably would be more appropriate. Sorry about that.

Interesting that Albeniz wrote his IBERIA SUITE for piano with the intention that no female pianist would ever be able to play it. Fortunate for him, it is precisely the excellence of female pianists who have recorded his Suite that has brought it to its grandeur.
