Catalogue Number: 05K069
Description: Don't let the opus numbers fool you: the Spanish Dances are the latest work here, from around 1887 and represent one of the first such cycles in which Albéniz uses Spanish (and also here, Cuban) rhythms and material, pointing the way to his mature period. The other two sets are high-class salon music, from 1880 and 1885, with Chopin and Schumann the major stylistic references. Guillermo González (piano).
