Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Martin Jones penetrates the ethos of Iberia with a natural feeling for their Spanish atmosphere, and he has sufficient confidence in his own special insights to offer an individual reading with pianism that is brilliantly coloured, rhythmically charismatic and often quite magical in its gentle evocation...his instinctive sympathy with the Spanish idiom brings a remarkable freshness to the music of Granados, and the recording is very real and natural."
