It's kind of weird, my being an 18 year old, to say a classical piano cd is my favorite. But, I'm a classical pianist, and a huge fan of Albeniz (and spanish music in general) and this is the best performance of these two incredible works you will find. Alicia de Larrocha makes this seem easy, never repetitive, and her technique is amazing without losing any of the expressiveness needed to play this music. Wow.

Format: Audio CD
There are, of course, many reasons why Spanish piano music is so little known or heard in our country. One reason is that the music is beyond the technical and emotional grasp of young students; the music is not like what we were all trained to play, i.e., German, French, etc. Another reason, in my opinion, is that the music is so demanding that the professional will opt for Chopin, Beethoven, or Debussy. Another is that the Spanish music demands extraordinary focus; Alicia has spent most of her life with this focus. Who in the rising tide of pianists will succeed her?
The entire "Goyescas" is a musical and pianistic masterpiece. I would describe the first four pieces in order as stunning, profoundly beautiful, thrilling, and emotionally ecstatic. I can promise you a wonderful listening experience.
In the "Iberia" we find a composer whose music reflects his Moorish feelings. Here we have flights of pure fantasy, gorgeous dissonances, beautiful melodies, and at times, just fun. Albéniz must have been born inside a piano with a quitar in each hand. I like the Evocation and the Jerez. The whole work reflects incredible energy and creativity in a man of supurb pianistic competance.
Every piano player should own and cherish this CD not only to enjoy piano music which they can never play, but also to understand how high and wide the human mind can go.
One can only wonder why Alicia doesn't record Scarlatti. Here's a man who started in Italy, stayed in Portugal, and settled in Spain; he used Spanish music in his Sonatas. Spanish music. What about it, Alicia? Anybody can play "European" music; you can play the music of Spain!

I first heard excerpts from this collection on CBC Radio l, while at our summer chalet in Quebec. As an American, and used to loud, insensitive music, I found this album to be a quiet place where I wanted to return to again and again.

I just listened to this on New York public radio (WQXR). I am buying the CD because the performance is both authentic and emotional - listen to it, and you'll see.

I bought this CD to find some Spanish piano music my students would enjoy playing. The content is lovely and Alicia De Larrocha is a master of clarity and sensitivity. She has 'fire in the belly,'the album is passionate and compelling. I have listened to it repeatedly and enjoy it tremendously.
