Granados. Los Requiebros from Goyescas
With a hitherto unpublished two-piano transcription of a Bach trio sonata as their point of departure, Cristina Casale and Emmanuel Ferrer-Laloë take us on a journey through the timeline of musical history and present some of the most outstanding works ever written for two pianos. They pay a visit to Classicism in a Mozart sonata, and get involved in Post-Romanticism with Rachmaninov’s Suite No. 2. Moving onward from there, Casale & Ferrer offer a rendition of Richard Rodney Bennett’s “Four Piece Suite”, influenced by more popular styles such as samba, blues, ragtime, and rock.
From Bach to rock: with two pianos they run the gamut from the most transcendent music to the most popular roots, without ever sacrificing anything in terms of artistic compositional quality.
Awarded the International Prize for Pianistic Creativity, Cristina Casale refreshes the music scene with her genuine combination of temperament, musicality and outstanding virtuosity. With her interpretations and with her talent for communication, Casale has away of expressing her passion for music and all the values that music contains through her commented concerts which she occasionally presents, her participation in benefic concerts and her contribution to Social Entities which use music to help people.
