Guillermo González (piano)
The third volume of Albéniz’s piano music presents three contrasting sets of dances, each brimming with the delicacy, joie de vivre and voluptuous beauty that characterise so much of his music.
Albéniz is touched by the spirit of Chopin in his delightful Pequeños valses, while the Mazurkas de salón, like those of his predecessor, and the Danzas españolas both transcend mere folkloricism.
Volumes 1 (8.554311-12) and 2 (8.570553), also featuring Guillermo González, one of the leading authorities on the composer, have been critically acclaimed.
“Guillermo González… is a distinguished pianist who has been recording Spanish repertoire for Naxos… González plays with passion, bringing out the music's warmth…On the basis of the above issue, this should prove to be another rewarding series from Naxos.”
