Book Description

Isaac Albéniz is one of the most important figures in the history of Spanish music. A legendary child prodigy, he went on to become one of the leading concert pianists of his generation in Europe. However, he aspired to compose music rooted in the folklore of his native Spain, contributing seminal masterpieces that defined the sound of Spanish art music in the 20th century and served as an inspiration to his most eminent successors. This annotated bibliography and research guide provides an up-to-date and thorough presentation of all the sources any aficionado, performer, or scholar would need to deepen his or her understanding of this fascinating pianist and composer.
