5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best Granados piano recording we have September 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I encountered this recording, that dates from the early sixties, for the first time on a Musical Heritage Society double LP that one commentator had remarked "sounded like Hispavox recorded it off a public address system". Even so, these wonderful recordings communicated the essence of Granados' inspiration in perfumed and ecstatic performance by Ms. De Larrocha. Now we have this excellent CD transfer that puts everything right sonically and lets us enjoy the music undistracted. Since this recording was not the artist's last word on the subject, why not buy her later performance? The reason is that this is the ne plus ultra of Granados recordings- the summit of achievement that will become one of your all-time favorite piano records.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ravishing... May 25, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Gorgeously played, sumptuously written. Nobody can play this music like Alicia de Larrocha. Recording noise notwithstanding, it's still fabulous and I'm buying my second copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good recordings with Alicia de Larrocha at her best. February 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Granados composed some excellent music and some of the pieces in these suites really stand out. For the price of the CD's it is a steal. The notes on the music are quite good, and the translations in each language are well done as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Five-star performance in one-star recorded sound September 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These discs offer the signature piano works of Granados in performances by an artist who was probably the greatest pianist Spain produced in the twentieth century. What a pity, then, that de Larrocha's marvelous keyboard work is marred by an irritating and distracting hissing, particularly on the second disc. EMI's sound engineers have really let listeners down. Older analogue recordings needn't sound this bad.
