Granada, the first movement of his Suite Espanola, represents a guitar serenade that is typical of many works by Albeniz in that is suggests, rather than quotes, rhythms and melodic elements to evoke the Spanish landscape.

During his career, Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909) established himself as one of Spain's foremost musicians. Through his activities as a conductor, impresario, performer and composer within Spain, as well as abroad, Albeniz not only contributed to the rebirth of Spanish nationalism, but also gained international recognition for Spanish music. Granada, the first movement of his Suite Espanola, represents a guitar serenade that is typical of many works by Albeniz in that it suggests, rather than quotes, rhythms and melodic elements to evoke the Spanish landscape. I have always been attracted to this piece and found that it transferred to marimba quite well. -J.S.
