Piano Recitals

CHOPIN & GRANADOS

Connected souls

 

Chopin and Granados saw the piano as the perfect instrument through which they could convey the full spectrum of emotions; those imagined, desired, experienced and lost.

The two artists never met in life, as the Catalan composer was born eighteen years after the death of the pianistic idol and champion of Romanticism, but the music of both composers continues to shine bright in our collective panorama connected by Granados' devotion to Chopin; a productive veneration that enabled the Catalan composer to discover his own voice with an unmistakable language full of creativity, beauty and finesse.

WITH A UNIVERSAL ACCENT

Albéniz, Granados, Falla, Halffter & Mompou 

Albéniz yearned to compose spanish music "with a universal accent". He wasn't the only one to achieve this, other composers such as Falla, Granados, Halffter or Mompou also left their mark on the universal piano literature. Each one with his own inherent sensitivity and particular language, but always evoking echoes of the dreamed land.
