Isaac
« on: May 18, 2007, 09:39:27 AM »
On this date, 1909,died Isaac Albeniz, composer of
the greatest spanish suite for the piano ever.
A marvellous work, extremely difficult technical
and stylistically.
Honor and praise to him, and Viva Iberia!!

To anybody interested:fine greek pianist
Rena Kyriakou has recorded almost all Issac's
works, and I believe they are on CD. She's
not Alicia, but he was good, and there are
dozens of pieces she'd recorded that almost
nobody knows.

And the price looks right. Definitely interesting!

I clicked on this thread expecting it to be about Heinrich Isaac (1450 - 1517). Never mind, Albeniz is a fine composer though my collection has only Iberia (Alicia de Larrocha and Marc-André Hamelin) and a few short pieces. Perhaps I should try some of the recommendations. Strange the thread hasn't been used since 2007. Also, just noticed someone else had the same thought about Heinrich.
