Catalogue Number: 10J056
Description: An early set of musical postcards, Recuerdos (1886-7) is from Albéniz' early, Romantic period of straightforward musical nationalism while the remainder of the works on this disc come from his Paris period (after 1894). Here, the composer evokes Spain with melodies entirely his own, brushed with impressionistic harmonies and the polyphonic forms of the Schola Cantorum. Guillermo González (piano).
