Notes and Editorial Reviews

The nationalist movement which swept European music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries was particularly fruitful for Spain. Most of the great figures of the Spanish musical revival, both composers and performers, owed much to the final polish applied by studies in Paris, and to the cosmopolitan artistic atmosphere of that city, but they never lost their essential Spanish qualities. Although string players such as Sarasate, Manen and Casals were part of the revival, much of the activity centered around the piano, the instrument of Albeniz, Granados, de Falla, Turina, Mompou and the Cuban-born Nin, and as marvelous Spanish singers were in plentiful supply, it was natural that most of the composers should enrich the art-song repertoire.

The results are not only fascinating historically, but satisfying artistically. Read less
