Robert Schwartz

“I cannot write about my stay in this dream world if it is not by composing. Nothing interests me as much as the sun that heats to whiteness the narrow streets of Granada. If one could make music out of it, how beautiful it would be.” –Isaac AlbénizPianist Robert Schwartz performs Isaac Albenizs masterpiece, Iberia, in honor of the composers 150th birthday. Infused with the evocative melodies and rhythms of flamenco, the twelve pieces of Iberia have thrilled and fascinated pianists and audiences with their eloquence and complexity. More than a century after its composition, the suite still stands as the most important piano work to come out of Spain.
