5.0 out of 5 stars The Queen of the Spanish piano does it again December 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
What can be said of Ms. de Larrocha that hasn't been said already?She is so perfectly attuned with the Spanish idiom she makes most others look like pretenders and hopeless amatuers.This impeccable recording is another demonstration in how to play as the composer would have played.Here are some highlights.Track 2:One of the most breathtakingly beautiful,melancholy and tender pieces of music ever written.A small masterpiece.A rather simple andante marked "Oriental" with a repeating main theme that is so exquisite in its tenderness and longing that it makes the heart ache.Track 3:Fast yet incredibly nimble.Track 4:A winsome,yet melancholy pastoral-lullaby marked "Villanesca".This is the best version I've ever heard.Track 5'"Andaluza".Recorded countless times,mostly on guitar.Alternately a dance and quiet reflection.One of the defining works of Granados and the Spanish school at the turn of the 20th century.Here it is played ever so perfectly by Dame de Larroccha.Track 6:Great crescendo and repeats.Track 7:Some clever phrases.Track 9:Kool stacattos and flourishes.Track 11:A playful theme that keeps foiling the attempted entry of a more solemn theme.A delightful tug of war.Track 12:Graceful andante offset by heavy dance steps.The 8 Poetic Waltzes(not individually marked)are the epitome of lightheartedness.Best subjects:1,4,5,7 and 8.Disc time:67'44.Stellar sound.If you want a Granados disc make this the one.It is PERFECTION.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and exquisite July 17, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I discovered this cd by accident at a friend's house and couldn't get it out of my mind. I listen to my copy frequently and never tire of it. The music is beautiful and played with a delicate, exquisite touch. Some of the pieces are truly haunting. I've given it as a gift to many friends--it's perfect as background music, but it rewards the careful listener even more.

5.0 out of 5 stars de Larrocha playing Granados doesn't get any better. October 7, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Extraordinary sensitivity at the keyboard and the finest interpreter of Spanish piano compositions. Ms. de Larrocha, that is!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly Expressive May 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There really is nothing to add here but I'll try.

I'm impressed with the depth of these compositions as much as, say, Chopin's Preludes or Mazurkas; they are entirely unique. I can't in words express how wonderful I feel every time I listen to these "paintings on the easel". For every listener, a wondrous soundscape
waits to be discovered!

Larrocha's performances are both technically and artistically pristine. And they should be...she literally wrote the book on these pieces; with Douglas Riva, she collaborated to produce the Urtext edition of Granados' works for piano, so, IMO her performances can be trusted to be played just the way the composer intended. For the pianist, these recordings are downright authoritative.

5.0 out of 5 stars The gold standard for this repertoire. October 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a textbook definition of the word "authoritative," you can't do better than Alicia de Larrocha's performances of the piano music of her fellow Catalunyan Enrique Granados. Granados' "Danzas Espanolas" are to Spain what Chopin's mazurkas are to Poland or Grieg's Lyric Pieces are to Norway. No one--except, presumably, Granados himself--ever played them with greater delicacy or feeling than De Larrocha, who learned her craft from Granados' own students. For anyone who likes Spanish piano music, this CD is a must-have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music to lift your spirits December 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I love this recording. The music is lively, hummable, memorable and inspiring. I am not a pianist and cannot appreciate the greatest of the talent of the musician, I can only say as a person who appreciates music, that this music is wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Master at Work July 4, 2013
By Dan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can one say about the enormously talented Alicia? She puts so much feeling and skill into her performance, you almost forget the song and focus on her playing.
