Reviews

‘Each track is excellently recorded, and Miss de Larrocha does everything possible for these little pieces, from the piquant sub-Scarlatti of Matéo Albéniz and Soler to the items by Isaac Albéniz and Granados … This music is mainly an evocation of dance and song, and the vividness and clarity, light and warmth are everywhere apparent’ (Spanish Piano Music) Gramophone
