Ah! It’s back. Good. I thought I’d dreamed it.
Yes, it’s about time we had Granados on CoW. I love what I know of his music which isn’t very much. I look forward to discovering more.

Granados, how neglected in our recital rooms, great piano music and fabulous songs.
Any mezzo looking for unusual material to delight her audience could not better the three Maja dolorosa songs played on today's programme and sung by Montserrat Caballe. There are equally, perhaps even finer versions by Teresa Berganza; utterly exquisite music.
Immediately agree with Gradus.
Therefore I think Granados would be served better with a complete, unabridged performance of his piano quintet in stead of the one included in this programme today.
