Canizares plays Goyescas

Just bought this of iTunes, absolutely incredible ! Spanish music at its best, didn't think it was possible to play thus on two guitars but Canizares really pulls this of brilliantly.

Vicente Carrillo gave me the Goyescas CD while I was visiting his taller earlier this month. Considering Cañizares is mainly a flamenco maesto, to hear him produce these flawless transcriptions of Enrique Granados' piano suite is stunning and beautiful. I listened to it while driving up to Cuenca for another impromptu juerga with some Gitanos whom I have met there before by Casas Colgadas.

There are actually piano roll recordings of Granados himself playing these pieces in New York. I think Cañizares adds a real lightness to his interpretation. :casque:
