Enrique Granados - Composer

One of the best results of the Naxos label's voluminous activity has been the unearthing of a great deal of Spanish orchestral music that has been more or less forgotten. Nowadays, Enrique Granados is known mostly for piano music and songs, and the three orchestral works here, all composed before 1900, have apparently never been recorded before. Yet all three have points of interest. Persist until the final Suite sobre cantos gallegos (Suite on Galician Songs), which marked one of Granados' first engagements with regional Spanish materials under the tuition of folklorist Felipe Pedrell. Sample the delightful "Canto de la manana" (track 7), with its bagpipe-evoking oboe and languid colors reminiscent of Grieg. The other two works are not folkloric in character, but rather take Wagner as an influence; annotator Justo Romero hits on the happy comparison of Ennio Morricone's spaghetti Western soundtracks for the expansive Marcha de los vencidos (track 1). In both this and another march, from the incidental music for the play Torrijos, one could wish for a bit more zip from the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra under Pablo Gonzalez, but the relaxed tone of the final suite suits them very well. A nice find with music that will be unknown even to Granados fans.--James Manheim
