Anyone else prefer the chamber pieces and the orchestral works over the solo piano music by this composer?  :blank:
I like his chamber pieces and the solo piano best.  The orchestral works, Goyescas play on local colors a lot, which I tend to get tired off after a while.
Thanks for this thread.  I did not know that he and his wife were WWII victims.

World War I.
1916, ye know.    :)

Well, he's a secondary composer and all that - I like to fill in info on people like this for the SSMS - Scion Sunday Morning Seminars - before I do the usual Sunday bit around town with friends and my Hungarian nurse-hottie.   :P

' Mechanical piano transcriptions made of turn-of the-Century pianist's using Edwin Welte's 1904 piano music reproduction system. Sony / Superscope sponsored audiophile recordings of these performances "almost 70 years later" resulting in this series of releases on vinyl and consumer reel to reel in the early 1970's '

Great composition by Granados and fine performance by Orchestra Gran Canaria. The sound quality is better than Naxos.
