Notes and Editorial Reviews

Larrocha treats these pieces with the utmost imagination and artistry... The Granados Andaluza is quite simply by far the best performance of it of the hundreds I have heard.

"[Larrocha] treats [these pieces] with the utmost imagination and artistry; and only Very Superior Persons could fail to enjoy miniatures played so beautifully as this. (They are also superbly well recorded.) Larrocha brings gipsy fire to Sacro-monte, lovely singing quality to Mompou's Secreto, sparkle to Puerta de tierra, colour, without exaggeration, to Rumores de la caleta, captivating verve to Valenciana, and subtle nuances to everything. . . . Even such over-familiar items as the Albeniz Tango are transformed by sensitive tonal
Read more gradations, and the Granados Andaluza is quite simply by far the best performance of it of the hundreds I have heard. . . . I can assure Larrocha that with these pieces, minor though they are, she is wasting neither her time nor ours." -- Lionel Salter, Gramophone
