NEXT AUTUMN ÁNGEL SANZO WILL RECORD ALBÉNIZ'S IBERIA SUITE. 

 

The most complex work by Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz will be recorded for the Berlin-based label eaSonus.

 

In the words of Olivier Messiaen, the Suite Iberia ‘is the wonder of the piano, and it occupies a place, perhaps the most remarkable, among the most illustrious stars of the king of instruments par excellence’. It is interesting to note in the French composer’s remark that terms such as ‘nationalism’ or ‘Spanish music’ do not enter his vocabulary; and that is what happens when we are faced with a masterpiece that is above all labels, universal. Iberia is the heir to the virtuosity of the second half of the nineteenth century, disseminated by Liszt, who, having taken piano technique to its maximum potential, found a continuator in Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909). The latter, working entirely without precedents in the Spanish piano literature, produced a complex and masterly compendium for the instrument that proved to be the highest degree of expression of the piano music of his country. Albéniz was a pianist of extraordinary gifts who, having been trained in the Romantic tradition, turned to the folklore of his homeland, not to make it a cause in itself, but as the starting point for his composition. Musical nationalism is simply the ultimate expression of Romanticism, a movement that asserted its supremacy for more than half a century, and found its final manifestation in the sentiments of a people living through the political consequences of increasing domination and oppression in the world. This explains how, within a single nation, Albéniz, Granados and Falla, exhibit quite different poetic universes, producing masterworks very close to each other in terms of date, but in divergent pianistic idioms. National aspirations do not lead anywhere unless there is talent to back them up.
