Douglas Riva is an American pianist and a scholar of Spanish music. He studied with with Alicia de Larrocha and worked with her in producing a complete edition of Granados' works. Ms. de Larrocha is a master of this music, and her CDs are available on more expensive record labels. But Mr. Riva plays beautifully, with virtuosic technique, and with sensitivity to this highly-charged romantic score.

Alicia de Larrocha has been playing these works, the greatest in the repertoire of Spanish piano music, all her life – one of her very first recordings, 40 years ago, was of some of the Goyescas, and I had the pleasure of welcoming her first Iberia ten years after that (10/65); and immersed as she was from her earliest childhood in the authentic tradition (her mother, her aunt and she herself were all trained at Granados’s own school, of which she later became director), she has several times been asked to re-record them. She once said, rather wistfully, that she didn’t consider herself a specialist but that Spanish music was what the public constantly demanded of her. One can sympathize with her if she feels inescapably cast in this mould – but then she shouldn’t be so wonderfully persuasive in it! She employs plenty of subtle rubato but possesses the ability to make it sound as natural as breathing; yet she can also preserve a stimulating tautness of rhythm.

Thomas Rajna completed his cycle of Granados’s solo piano music within a year – 1976. As if to celebrate the thirtieth anniversary of their original appearance on CRD LPs Brilliant Classics has returned the cycle to the market-place. It’s in one slim box containing six nicely filled CDs and with extensive notes from Bryce Morrison. Nothing could be finer. Rajna was an expert advocate for Granados’s music and though recordings since have come – and gone – his have maintained an honoured place in the memory; and now, thankfully, in the disc drawer. And this is all the more so as so few are performed in public with any great conviction, beyond the obvious Goyescas and maybe Escenas Poeticas and Escenas Romanticas.

Grand Piano is a series devoted to the art of the Reproducing Piano. It presents major performances by the legendary pianists who recorded for the Aeolian Company between 1915 and 1930. The acoustic gramophone rarely attempted major keyboard works. The 78s' restricted sound and duration was acceptable for short virtuoso pieces but little else. In contrast, by 1915, the Aeolian Company's "Duo-Art" was already a highly sophisticated digital recording process. Pianists, well aware of the gramophone's limitations, turned enthusiastically to the reproducing piano. Hofmann, Bauer, Paderewski and Grainger were especially committed, not alone in believing that they had achieved the ultimate recording process. Great pianists joined them in recording their concert repertoire, including much that was never repeated on disc.

Performer, composer and teacher, Enrique Granados stood with de Falla and Albéniz as the most outstanding Spanish musician of his time. Among his dozen or so chamber works the Piano Trio and Piano Quintet, both from 1894, exemplify Granados’s highly expressive, Neo-romantic style, his piano writing revealing the hand of a virtuoso. Amiable touches of dance and salon music, hints of Moorish, gypsy and folkloric elements, co-exist in these beautiful, refined pieces. The famous Intermezzo from his opera Goyescas, an Aragonese jota, is heard here in Gaspar Cassadó’s popular arrangement.

A pianist of keen musicality and sweeping virtuosity, Xiayin Wang returns to solo repertoire with this fascinating exploration of works by Enrique Granados, revealing a technically challenging and complex musical language, yet full of colour and emotional intensity. Perhaps because the source of their inspiration was so close to the composers heart, the Goyescas piano pieces are the most liberated examples of the genius of Granados.

Label: Steinway and Sons | Release Year: 2017

Inspired by the art of eighteenth century painter Francisco Goya, Goyescas is perhaps the greatest work of Enrique Granados. Yoonie Han, a specialist in this repertoire, is a brilliant advocate for this evocative Suite that captures the art and musical styles of Spain. A follow-up to her praised first release on the Steinway label, "Love and Longing," which was praised for its heartfelt performances and harmonically fulfilling recording, this new album offers the complete Goyescas, recorded at the new Steinway Hall in New York City. "Yoonie Hall has gleaned considerable note for her victories at selected competitions. A pupil of Eleanor Sokoloff, Robert McDonald, and Philippe Entremont, she possesses an articulate combination of fluency and poetic feeling."

Granados’s famous opera Goyescas, first performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 1916, derives from the piano suite premiered in Paris two years previously. At the head of a BBC SO in top form and a handpicked cast, Josep Pons clearly much enjoyed conducting this sparkling new production in London: many scenes in the opera draw their inspiration directly from paintings by Goya, which listeners will also have the pleasure of finding in the booklet of this rare and precious album.

Very often interpreted in their original version for piano, the recording of the opera version of the Goyescas are rare and it fills a gap in the discography. Created in 1916 at MET New York, many scenes of this opera are directly inspired by Goya's paintings. A specialist in this repertoire, Spanish conductor Josep Pons has assembled a brilliant cast around the BBC orchestra.

Trio Rodin's debut recording presents a new version of the Granados piano trio Op. 50 based on the manuscript found at the "Museu de la Música de Barcelona" instead of the more commonly played Edition UMe. The CD also includes the world first recording of Granados Trova along with an arrangement by the composer himself of his most famous chamber orchestra piece Elisenda. The sonata for violin and piano is another of the great surprises this CD has to offer.
