Format: Audio CD
This is great piano music. Period. And it is unabashedly likeable, even by, er, laymen's standards. It is said that "Carmen" is the perfect opera to introduce to someone who is convinced he hates opera. If you know someone who thinks he hates classical pianism, this could be his "Carmen."
I would love this music just for the pianism, which is exactly where it should be, bordering on Liszt, Debussy and Spain; would love it just for the rightness of the music's Spanish character; would love it just for González' brilliant playing. I would love this music just for any one of these three, but they are all here, perfectly, brilliantly, joyously blended. The piano dances, it sings, it cries, compels, entrances. The piano convinces you it is as light and nimble as a guitar, but doesn't weary the ear after two hours and twenty minutes, where the ear might suffer after such an uninterrupted stretch of the six-stringed instrument.
This performance would have been well worth the ticket of a fully-priced two-disc set. But it prices much, much lower. In many respects, a miraculous outpouring of music.
There are a lot of guitar discs with the "Asturias (Leyenda)" in transcription. I have no quarrel with the guitar transcription; it is one (albeit minor) proof of how right the music is for Spain, for the quintessential flamenco instrument. And we were mesmerized watching (and listening to) Eliot Fisk play the "Asturias" at Borders one fine afternoon. But if you like the guitar transcription of the "Asturias" (and to hear it is to love it) try a compare/contrast with this performance, as the piece was originally composed.
You won't have to choose between them. There can be ample room in your heart for both.

This is a wonderful performance. I probably have 15 recordings of Iberia. I'm not sure that I could say this is the "best" performance, but it may be. It is very sympathetic to the composer's intentions and has a wonderful lilt to it that has beguiled me. The pianist for this recording has done a lot of research into the work creating a new performing edition along the way, yet this is far from a "studied" performance. If you appreciate this work, you really "must" have this performance. The recording quality is very good, the piano tone excellent and the performance enlightening. If you don't know the work, you'll LOVE this work and performance. There's a lot of beauty and substance to Iberia, one of the great piano works of its era.

If you have come to know Isaac Albeniz's music through transcriptions for guitar only, you need to hear this. The music has great passion that doesn't come across on the guitar as well as it does on piano. I had previously listened to Segovia, Parkening, John Williams, and David Russell all play the Albeniz repertoire. Listening to this two CD collection was an excellent learning experience. Hearing the pieces played as they were written for piano was like hearing them for the first time. I would recommend this set for anyone interested in great music of the late nineteenth century.
Excellent performance. Very good audio quality.

What you have here is Albeniz music in its original form - for solo piano. This is not "heavy" music. I bought out of curiosity because my son has been learning Albeniz transcriptions on the guitar. The best of it really charms, some of it drags through lack of interest. The Iberia suites suffer, I think, from not having the benefits bestowed by their orchestrations and I am now so accustomed to hearing the Suites Espanolas on guitar that they seem a little flat on the the piano. None of this is due to the playing, which is very professional.
