5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly charming 27 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
These dances are insidious: they reveal their delights only gradually, after three or four hearings, and then they get beneath the skin and stay there! Beautifully evocative of Spain in their rich lilting charm, they were originally piano pieces written early in Granados's career. The present version was orchestrated by Rafael Ferrer and it is wholly fitting and in character with the originals' beguiling melodic subtlety.

The performances here are appropriately restrained and aristocratic. The recording is first rate, the notes very helpful and informative. A real charmer of a disc - not profound maybe, but rather addictive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danzas Espanolas orchestrated 25 May 2012
By Piso Mojado - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an arrangement for orchestra of Enrique Granados's piano album 12 Danzas espanolas (Spanish Dances), Op. 37. You have probably heard these pieces arranged for guitar, but they sound good orchestrated. The orchestration is by Rafael Ferrer, who was this orchestra's music director from 1962 to 1967. They were the uncredited orchestra in Caballe Sings Granados when they were called the Barcelona Municipal Orchestra. Nowadays they call themselves the Barcelona Symphony and Catalonia National Orchestra, a display of regional nationalism which would not have been tolerated in Francoist Spain. Good for them! (Good for the musicians, not for the fascists.) They are better than the orchestra of fifty years ago.

I think this recording would be most useful to dancers who want a louder accompaniment than piano. If you are a listener who enjoys Granados and piano music arranged for orchestra, you should enjoy this. It is well played and well recorded.
