ENRIQUE GRANADOS (1867-1916): Piano Music, Vol. 9 - 24 Scarlatti Sonata Transcriptions and transcriptions of sonatas by Francisco Courcelle [1702-1778] and Anon.
Catalogue Number: 09J051
Description: Granados was a young man when he got the commission to transcribe these sonatas from a newly discovered manuscript. Scarlatti was practically unknown at the time and the necessity was felt to present these pieces to the public in a manner suited to the modern piano, leading Granados to occasionally modify harmonies, amplify the original textures, add many expressive indications and provide written-out realizations of Scarlatti's ornaments. 2 CDs. Douglas Riva (piano).
