Description: BIS' long-evolving series may have seniority in time but Naxos offers first recordings, three of them in this new release of pieces dating from 1885 to c. 1891, most of them still too early to sound like mature Albéniz (the Serenata árabe is the most advanced piece here). Three transcriptions of the only piano recordings the composer ever made are also included. Rubén Ramiro (piano).
