This week's free download is Albéniz's Recuerdos de viaje: No. 6, Rumores de la caleta (Malagueña), performed by pianist Imogen Cooper and recorded on Chandos. It was awarded five stars for both performance and recording in the November issue of BBC Music Magazine.

Isaac Albéniz was a Spanish virtuoso pianist and composer, renowned for the use of Spanish folk music in his music. Although he was prolific, many of his works have been lost or were left incomplete. Recuerdos de Viaje was written in the late Romantic era between 1886 and 1887. The work is in seven parts, of which your free download is the sixth, ‘Murmurs of the Cove, featuring Spanish cross rhythms and guitar-like figurations.  

‘Cooper’s pianism has a rare refinement, and is hyper-sensitive to the composers’ demands’, writes our reviewer, Michael Church. ‘We are more used to encountering her in Beethoven and Schubert, but these tone-poems have unlocked a new seam of poetry in her playing.’
