PDF scanned by musicologie. One of the most important works in the Spanish piano literature. Iberia is a wonderful mixture of Spanish music with impressionist influences. Triana - a popular Sevillian district - is probably the most brilliant piece in the whole collection. It is a fireworks' spectacle of Andalusian essence with an important gitana influence.

This is one of the eight Iberia selections in sonata form, with its attendant exposition, development, and restatement of themes. But this piece bears only passing resemblance to it and is a hybrid of various styles.
It is composed of four books of three pieces each; a complete performance lasts about 90 minutes. It was highly praised by Claude Debussy and Olivier Messiaen , who said: " Iberia is the wonder for the piano; it is perhaps on the highest place among the more brilliant pieces for the king of instruments". Stylistically, this suite falls squarely in the school of Impressionism , especially in its musical evocations of Spain. It is considered one of the most challenging works for the piano: "There is really nothing in Isaac Albeniz's Iberia that a good three-handed pianist could not master, given unlimited years of practice and permission to play at half tempo. But there are few pianists thus endowed.
