GRANADOS, E.: Orchestral Works, Vol. 2 - Dante / La nit del mort / Goyescas: Intermezzo (Barcelona Symphony, González)

Revered as one of the greatest Spanish composers for the piano, Enrique Granados also wrote a wide-ranging body of orchestral music. His one-act opera Goyescas contains an intensely lyrical Intermezzo that is his most popular work and one of the best-loved pieces in all Spanish music. The gypsy-tinged orientalism of Danza de los ojos verdes and Danza gitana contrast with the sombre and epic La nit del mort and the ambitious large-scale symphonic poem Dante, one of the most significant Spanish orchestral works of its time. This is the second in a series commemorating the centenary of Granados’ death. Volume 1 can be heard on Naxos 8.573263.
