Happy Birthday, Enrique Granados!

00-37300Enrique Granados was born on this day in 1867, in the city of Lleida, Spain.  As a young man, he first studied piano in Barcelona, and later in Paris.  He returned to  Barcelona in 1889.  In 1911, he premiered his suite for piano,  Goyescas.  Goyescas is the most popular of Granados’ works. It is a suite of six pieces, each piece based on a painting of Francisco Goya.  He also wrote Valses Poeticos and 12 Spanish Dances.  His nationalistic music is uniquely Spanish in style.   Sadly, Granados and his wife, Amparo, died when a German submarine torpedoed their passenger ship during WWI.  Stanton’s stocks all 3 collections of works mentioned above.  Get one of them, expand your horizons, and add to your repertoire!
