Granados, Enrique

Granados, Enrique

▪ Spanish composer
born July 27, 1867, Lérida, Spain
died March 24, 1916, at sea
 pianist and composer, a leader of the movement toward nationalism in late 19th-century Spanish music.

      Granados made his debut as a pianist at 16. He studied composition in Barcelona with Felipe Pedrell (Pedrell, Felipe), the father of Spanish nationalism in music. He studied piano in Paris in 1887. Returning to Barcelona in 1889, he established himself as a pianist of the front rank, and his 12 Danzas españolas achieved great popularity. The first of his seven operas, María del Carmen, was produced in 1898. In 1900 Granados founded a short-lived classical-concerts society and his own piano school, which produced a number of distinguished players. His interest in the 18th century is reflected in his tonadillas (tonadilla), songs written “in the ancient style.” He wrote extensively and fluently for the piano, in a somewhat diffuse, Romantic style. His masterpieces, the Goyescas (1911–13), are reflections on Francisco de Goya's paintings and tapestries. They were adapted into an opera that received its premiere in New York City in 1916. Returning home from this performance, Granados drowned when his ship, the Sussex, was torpedoed by a German submarine.
