schema:description"Walter Aaron Clark here presents, for the first time in English, a detailed and accurate account of one of the most intriguing musicians of the late-Romantic period. Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909), a renowned concert pianist, created a national style of composition in such celebrated piano collections as the Suite espanola, Cantos de Espana, and Iberia. He also fostered the development of Spanish nationalism in the concerto, orchestral music, and opera. He was thus the first composer to put into successful practice the nationalist precepts of his mentor Felip Pedrell. Moreover, he incorporated contemporary French and German trends into his Spanish style in order, as he put it, 'to create Spanish music with a universal accent'. In so doing he pointed the way for Falla, Turina, and Rodrigo, the dominant figures of twentieth-century Spanish composition."@en
