Heinrich Albert was born in 1870 in Wuerzburg. As a guitarist, composer, publisher, and teacher, he was a leading figure in German-speaking regions. He died in 1950 in Gauting, near Munich. 'The works in this edition are a compilation of pieces which for the most part were performed by Heinrich Albert at his own concerts. The pieces concerned range from early pices, such as 'Old Spanish Song', to later ones from the 4th volume, which was also published at a later date. The stylistic range includes pices in the Spanish idiom (Elegiac Mazurka), pieces with Italian associations (Notturno, Italian Song), and also compositions suggesting the tonal language of the time (Prelude No. 1). Albert's own guitar compositions are technically innovative and in the range of keys employed go far beyond those customarily used for the guitar. His compostional approach was to take the modern Italian and Spanish schools and transform them to form a new style, focusing in particular on formal and compostional aspects ... As a composer and performer, he enjoyed success in places such as Munich and Berlin with concerts in which the programme consisted entirely of his own works. At the time of their composition, his pieces belonged to the general repertoire of all the prominent German-speaking players of the day.' ~~ Andreas Stevens, Editor
