About this Piece

The music of Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909) is awash with the rhythms and perfumes of Spain, and Almería is a musical day in the life of a bustling seaport, with the salubrious proximity of the sea. As fiendishly difficult to play as it is evocative of the dances and songs of Albeniz’ native country, Almería comes from the piano suite Iberia, the composer’s greatest achievement.
