Granados por Cañizares
2012 SONY Music Spain
“Cañizares” new recording of Suite Goyescas by Enrique Granados is a milestone in itself. Not only does it coincide with the Suite’s hundredth anniversary, with Cañizares having undertaken a fundamental project in transcribing it for two guitars, adding a new, unexpected dimension, but also because it is a masterly performance worthy of one of Spanish music’s best ambassadors.
Cañizares has an impeccable technique, revealing a completely new musical continent, covering the entire range of colours, acoustic atmospheres and rhythms of Suite Goyescas. We are constantly surprised by the nuance of his tone, the sound of his guitar and the subtle way in which he transports us to a world that has been transfigured by music with soul.
Cañizares has always fascinated me with the intimacy and subtlety of his music, which always carries me farther than expected. In my opinion, Cañizares is a poet of the guitar, and this recording is the proof of that.”
