Valses 1 composed by De Larrocha Granados. For Piano. Published by Editorial de Musica Boileau (BO.B.3315).

ISBN 84-8020-689-6.

English comments:
Works in dance forms, especially waltzes, must have formed an important part of the young Granados' repertoire during the period when he worked as a cafe-pianist in Barcelona. Given his well-documented skill in improvisation, Granados probably improvised all or most of the music he played in these cafes, rather than performing finished compositions. If he did in fact play his own composed works, he would have been more likely to have played waltzes such as La sirena or Carezza rather than sophisticated and complex compositions such as Cartas de amor or Valses poeticos. In these works Granados achieved a stylisation of the waltz-form which is imbued with his own highly personal musical idiom. Granados' waltzes reveal many facets of his connection to the Romantic period since they are closely related to the 19th Century Romantic ideal of the waltz as exemplified by those of Schubert and Chopin, rather than being inspired by Spanish popular themes. It is impossible to know the specific dates of composition of Granados' waltzes since, with the exception of Cuatro Notas (Four Notes), dated 1888, and Valse de concert (Concert Waltz), published in 1914, none of the sources are dated. However, it is virtually certain that all the waltzes were composed prior to 1900.

Comentarios del Espanol:
Las piezas escritas segun formas bailables, especialmente los valses, supusieron una parte importante de las obras que el joven Granados interpretaba en su epoca de pianista de cafe en Barcelona. Dada la calidad de sus muy elogiadas improvisaciones, es probable que repentizara toda o casi toda la musica que interpretaba en los cafes en lugar de tocar composiciones terminadas. Por ello es posible que Granados hubiera ofrecido obras del talante de La sirena o Carezza en lugar de piezas tan sofisticadas y de considerable dificultad tecnica como las Cartas de amor o los Valses poeticos, en las que su autor logro la estilizacion del genero transformandolas en obras de inspiracion propia. Los valses de Granados revelan distintos aspectos de su vinculacion al movimiento romantico. Apenas contienen rasgos propios de la tematica popular espanola sino que ponen en evidencia la influencia que sobre su autor ejercieron compositores como Schubert o Chopin. No es posible saber con certeza la fecha de composicion de los valses porque las fuentes de las que han sido extraidos, a excepcion de Cuatro notas (1888) y Valse de concert, editado en 1914, carecen de este tipo de indicaciones, pero se supone que todos ellos fueron escritos antes de 1900.
