Books about Isaac Albéniz and his music

bookWalter Aaron Clark Isaac Albeniz: Portrait of a Romantic
Oxford University Press, 2003; ISBN 0199250529; 360 pages
Walter Aaron Clark here presents, for the first time in English, a detailed and accurate account of one of the most intriguing figures in the Romantic period. Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909), a renowned concert pianist, created a national style of Spanish piano music and also fostered the growth of the concerto, orchestral music, and opera in Spain. As a touring child prodigy who supposedly stowed away on a steamer to the New World, later studied with Liszt, and eventually got ensnared in a "Faustian pact" with the wealthy English librettist, Frances Burdett Money-Coutts, Albeniz has become somewhat of a legend. Based on a wealth of new and previously overlooked documentary evidence, this biography debunks the mythology surrounding his career, much of it spun by the composer himself.

Alb niz's letters, manuscripts, library, photographs, and other important documents and personal effects are discussed. This guide to research sheds welcome light on one of the most important composers in the history of Spanish music, one whose works won the admiration of Faure, Debussy, and Messiaen, and exerted a profound influence on de Falla, Turina, and Rodrigo.

Espana: Opus 165 by Albeniz - Mel Bay Publications
As one of the leaders in the renaissance of Spanish music at the turn of the twentieth century, Isaac Albéniz was regarded as the founder of the Spanish "national school." Always fascinated with the music of Andalucia, Albeniz composed numerous small but beautifully performed portraits of his native Spain. These brightly colored piano pictures of his native land are sufficient reason for him to be called "the Liszt of Spanish music." Six pieces or "pages from an album" from his opus 165 "España" appear in this volume for solo guitar, as they have been transcribed and arranged by John Griggs in notation only.
