Spanish Dance No. 5
Marina Chiche & Aurélien Pontier
Granados, along with Albéniz, de Falla, Turina and Rodrigo, is one of a quintet of composers emblematic of the renaissance in Spanish music at the end of the 19th century. He left Spain in 1887 to study in Paris, where he met the most recent generation of French composers: Fauré, Debussy, Ravel, Dukas, Saint-Saëns, d'Indy, etc.Granados would borrow heavily from the folk music of his country. Curiously, he never wrote for guitar, that instrument so highly representative of Spanish culture.Many of his works have been transcribed, including this Spanish Dance No. 5, arranged by Kreisler.
