Albeniz: Iberia - 3rd Book

Since their publication as Urtext editions, the first two volumes of #Iberia# issued by G. Henle Publishers have become an established part of the pianists# world. Now comes the third book, in which Albéniz once again fuses his knowledge of European classical music with elements of Spanish folk music. In #El Albaicín# he evokes the mysterious atmosphere of the gypsy quarter in Granada, followed by hints of temperamental Flamenco in #El Polo#. At the end, Albéniz depicts the exuberant mood of a former Jewish quarter in Madrid (#Lavapiés#); in so doing he intersperses the music with some dissonant dashes of colour, an allusion to an organ grinder.
