On the consequences of the lack of appreciation

Dante is a magnificent work by Enric Granados whose reception at the concerts in Barcelona tragically conditioned the abandonment of the unfinished score. Dante's private audition in 1908 oozed positive sensations (Francesc Cortés i Mir "Dante e l'arte"), but the lamentable (both for shameful and devastating) criticisms of the press would discourage the composer:

Perhaps the Divine Comedy is not perfectly suited to his temperament
[...] although there is no lack of emotion in the work of Granados, its development is not spontaneous and subtracts the necessary unity to the whole

La Vanguardia

The new production, unfortunately, was a failure

[...] Granados should completely leave the rugged path that starts in its new production

El Diluvio

May 27, 1915

The clichés towards the music of Granados dramatically limited the authentic appreciation of the true scope of the work and the greatness of its author.

Only two of the four planned parts were finished. We invite you to listen to this music and contrast the mentioned opinions:

If you hear something and it changes you it's because what you heard was someone who became and innovator by working hard on himself,

not so much work on the instrument.
