While composers such as Liszt, who toured Spain to great acclaim in 1844, came home eager to infuse their music with Spanish melodies and rhythms, Albéniz and Granados' piano music reflects their Spanish roots and the romantic music of Mendelssohn, Schubert, Chopin and Fauré; works they grew up with and continued to perform as piano recitalists. Presented by Donald Macleod.
