Fernando Delgado, presentationFor travellers and home readers. A look at Spain from the piano of the 19th century
The musicologist Fernando Delgado presents the second concert of the series Muscal clichés. Visions of Spain and unlocks the keys to the success of the virtuoso piano repertoire of Spanish inspiration during the nineteenth century. The institution of the public concert, the improvement in communications, the existence of a bourgeois audience and the evolution of the modern piano, combined with the exotic perspective, are some of the factors that explain the Spanish forays of Liszt, Gottschalk and Oscar de la Cinna, pianist-composers who also travelled around the Iberian Peninsula.
