Enrique Granados: Intermezzo from Goyescas (piano part)
Enrique Granados was a Catalan composer whose music is steeped in the sound of his native land. In 1911 he wrote his most famous work, the six movement solo piano work Goyescas based on the paintings of Goya. The work was so popular that in 1916 he expanded it into an opera. This Intermezzo from Goyescas begins with a declamatory unison bass and piano introduction, which quickly melts into a lovely 3/4 melody. This delightful and accessible character piece is of moderate difficulty. Its simple expressiveness and Catalan flavor is sure to please. This edition is in orchestra tuning with a separate piano part available for Solo Tuning.
