Description

Isaac Albeniz (1860-1909) composed primarily for solo piano, but it was through transcriptions for the guitar that his fame was largely established. Although he never composed for the guitar, he frequently took its idioms as instrumental models and drew inspiration from the folk music of Andalusia. Isaac Albeniz began his piano studies when barely past infancy, giving his first public concert at the age of four. At six he passed the entrance examination for the Paris Conservatory, but did not enroll because of his age. At eight he embarked on his first concert tour. A few years later, he ran away from home, traveling as a stowaway on a ship bound for Puerto Rico. He then toured South America and the United States, after which he returned to Europe and studied with Liszt. At twenty he was already touring Europe and America as a mature virtuoso.

Press reviews

Fanfare

(…) the remarkable twins play like a 20-fingered guitarist.(…) (…)This is one of the few time’s I’ve heard the famous Tango in D ( it’s part of Espaa) played as if it really were a tango-very refreshing. I except many hours of pleasure from this wonderful CD and, if you love this music, you can expect the same.

Handelsblatt

Preistrger diverser Wettbewerbe, verfgt ber eine lebendige, feinglierige Klangsprache und schwingende Eleganz (…)

Diapason

(…) on remarque l’homognit du duo Katona.(…) (…) des passages virtuoses ne leur pose pas de problme (…) (…) les interprtations sont de rs bonne tenue.

Gelderlander

(…) De getalenteerde tweelingbroers Peter en Zoltn hebben het inmiddels ver geschopt, en een aantal prijzen en onderscheidingen in de wacht gesleept. Zij zijn erin geslaagd met hun eigen bewerkingen een goed beeld te schetsen van het werk van deze componist (…) (…) Pittige zowel als ingetogen muziek, veel mooie momenten (…) (…) Ook de liefhebbers van gitaarmuziek zullen deze cd waarderen.
