The six works selected by Alberto Urroz for this recording comprise some of the finest Spanish contributions to the universal piano literature. All were composed in a period of seventy years (1851-1921) which proved to be key in the evolution of piano language from romanticism to modernity, a time when Spanish piano music constituted a reference for the romantic Spain dreamed of by writers and poets. Albéniz, Granados and Falla represent the culmination of this nationalist and evocative piano, its roots sunk in the essence of popular Spanish music, but recreated in a modern language of the greatest quality.
