    Spanish music with a universal touch": that is what Isaac Albéniz set out to compose, and he brought it off to perfection in his Iberia Suite. At last all four "books" of this late-romantic masterpiece will be issued in an urtext edition worthy of the name, with top-quality appearance and engraving. Being manageable in their technique, Evocation, El Puerto, and Fête-Dieu à Séville -- the three pieces in volume 1 -- are especially popular. Enjoy these pieces in the same manner as Debussy, who wrote of Iberia: "One closes one‘s eyes and is bedazzled by the sheer wealth of invention in this music!

  • Contains the following pieces:
    • Evocation
    • El Puerto
    • Fête-Dieu à Séville
