Notes and Editorial Reviews

Distinguished cellist Andrew Smith’s interest in Spanish music was awakened by his collaboration with Spanish pianist and conductor Alfredo Oyaguez Montero beginning in 1999. This artistic partnership led to a program of all-Spanish works, which they have performed to great acclaim on tour worldwide. The album features music by several of Spain’s greatest composers, including Manuel de Falla, Enrique Granados, Joaquin Turina, and Xavier Montsalvatge. Perhaps less familiar is Gaspar Cassado, who-after the great Pablo Casals (his teacher)- was Spain’s most famous 20th century cellist. Prime examples of both his original compositions and his many arrangements are heard here, along with a lovely folk song transcription from Casals. This glowing Read more release promises to be a rare treat for cello fans and Spanish music aficionados alike- and will convincingly demonstrate the cello’s affinity with the unique spirit and piquant flavors of the Spanish musical idiom.
