Since their publication as Urtext editions, the first two volumes of 'Iberia' issued by G. Henle Publishers have become an established part of the pianists' world. Now comes the third book, in which Albeniz once again fuses his knowledge of European classical music with elements of Spanish folk music. In 'El Albaicin' he evokes the mysterious atmosphere of the gypsy quarter in Granada, followed by hints of temperamental Flamenco in 'El Polo'. At the end, Albeniz depicts the exuberant mood of a former Jewish quarter in Madrid ('Lavapies'); in so doing he intersperses the music with some dissonant dashes of colour, an allusion to an organ grinder.?
