Paris and Fame

Duration:
1 hour
First broadcast:
Tuesday 21 September 2010

Soon after his marriage Albeniz moved to Madrid and continued his flourishing performing career there. A series of recitals at the 1888 Universal Exhibition in Barcelona caused such a sensation that he was invited to perform in Paris where he again received rave reviews. Donald Macleod introduces Albeniz's Concerto Fantastico which he'd played to great acclaim in both cities, together with another of his Spanish style piano works, and his charming, and very classical, fourth piano sonata.
