Product Notes

Debussy and Messiaen regarded Iberia as THE piano masterpiece of the twentieth century: 'One's eyes close, as if dazzled from having gazed upon too many images', wrote Debussy in 1905. For Nelson Goerner too, this suite in four books, which evokes Andalusia and the working-class districts of Madrid, is a work of major stature: 'I am of Argentinian origin, this music touches me, it is like an arrow that pierces me... From the sublime incantation that is Jerez, an invocation of the mysteries of night, to Lavapiès, famous for the pianistic difficulties posed by it's polyphonic convolutions and hand-crossings, Albéniz's music exudes a panache and a joie de vivre that, in my view, make it a milestone of supreme importance.'
