Michael Jameson, February 2001

"Volume 4 of the continuing Naxos survey of the piano music of Enrique Granados includes three world premiere recordings. The performer is the American pianist Douglas Riva, who now enjoys a considerable reputation for his interpretations of Spanish music and has a particularly strong affinity with the works of Granados.'ll be treated to pleasing performances of Apparitions (Romantic Waltzes), and there's rich humour in Riva's accounts of the ten Stories of Youth. The Apparitions find their way onto disc for the first time here, as do the five Scenes from Childhood. The other premiere recording is Honey from Alcarria: Jota."
