Description: This series continues with a disc-full of early works (1881-92), when Albéniz was still primarily a concert pianist and yet to hear the calling to become a Spanish composer. High quality salon dances mix with a set of rigorous etudes, a neo-classical Saisons and Suite antiqua, a tasty little Cuban piece and the only existing movement from an 1884 sonata - a muscular scherzo lasting not even four minutes. Juan José Mudarra Gámiz (piano).
