Spain, as so often, went it's own way: the 19th century was characterized by a music oriented towards national traditions; in contrast to Central Europe, there were less great symphonies and operas but rather numerous songs with the classical accompanying instrument of the guitar. This, of course, says nothing about the compositional quality - two of the great exponents of Spanish music of that time, Enrique Granados and Manuel de Falla - who of course also composed symphonic music - served this genre with numerous treasures that excellently combine folkloristic melodies and compositional sophistication. Their two cycles Doce tonadillas en estilo antiguo and Siete canciones populares españolas both show a very individual personal style, which inspired the world-famous and multiple award-winning soprano Nuria Rial to a fascinating vocal cosmos off the usual paths.
