Enrique Granados, born in Lerida, Spain, on July 27, 1867, symbolized the essence of Spanish romanticism in his compositions. Granados was fascinated by the paintings of Francisco Goya (1746-1828). The vivid strokes, the beautiful maja and the fashions of the time in Goya’s works all appealed to Granados. Between 1909 and 1911, he composed his tribute to the painter, a masterpiece titled Goyescas. Pianist Benita Meshulam presents this work in all its painterly glory.
