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:

The new production, unfortunately, was a failure
[...] Granados should completely leave the rugged path that starts in its new production
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.
