Enrique Granados

Granados, Enrique (ānrēˈkā gränäˈħōs) [key], 1867–1916, Spanish composer and pianist, b. Havana; studied at Barcelona with Felipe Pedrell. His most significant works are those for the piano in which he created the peculiarly Spanish manner later used by de Falla. Goyescas (1911), a set of piano pieces that later formed the basis for an opera of the same name, is his outstanding work. He appeared as a pianist in Paris and Spain, and Casals and Saint-Saëns were among artists who performed with him and admired his style.
