albéniz: complete songs
Audax Records presents the second album by the Guatemalan soprano Adriana González (winner of Operalia 2019) and the Basque pianist Iñaki Encina Oyón. One can again take delight in a discovery: the complete recording of the songs of Isaac Albéniz. Following the chronological order of the compositions, the duo traces the short, but varied life of the most important Spanish composer and waymarker toward the twentieth century. From his first attempts at composition up to his crowning work Iberia, these songs encompass Albéniz’s entire artistic spectrum. The author of the booklet text, Prof. Dr. Jacinto Torres, is one of the most renowned Albéniz experts. His love of the composer and knowledge of his life and works speak out of every line of his text. A colorful, poetic album with new, unheard-of impressions emerging from every track.
