Guillermo Gonzalez (piano)

[ Naxos / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 1 May 2009

"This is a great CD that explores some impressive music that is technically superb in both the sound quality and the performance. González succeeds in making these pieces both moving and attractive."
(MusicWeb May 2009)

The third volume of Albéniz's piano music presents three contrasting sets of dances, each brimming with the delicacy, joie de vivre and voluptuous beauty that characterise so much of his music.

Albéniz is touched by the spirit of Chopin in his delightful Pequeños valses, while the Mazurkas de salón, like those of his predecessor, and the Danzas españolas both transcend mere folkloricism.

Volumes 1 (8554311-12) and 2 (8570553), also featuring Guillermo González, one of the leading authorities on the composer, have been critically acclaimed.
