The Trío Arbós launches its critical edition of the Trio In C Major Op. 50 by Enrique Granados

This critical edition is offered openly to the musical world to celebrate Trío Arbós 25th anniversary

The Trio op. 50 in C major by Enrique Granados, one the most important Spanish works for piano, appears in 1895. This piece is an inspired and solid attempt to reconcile the grand late-romantic Central European musical forms with a distinctly Spanish language based on the teachings of Felipe Pedrell. A work with a very complex musical structure in consonance with the late-romantic European tradition and an inspired content of a personal and poetical nature.

The Granados trio was premiered in Madrid with the composer himself at the piano, the violinist Julio Francés and a 17 year-old cellist Pablo Casals, at the time a student at the Madrid Conservatory. The work was never again performed during Granados’ life. After his tragic death, remained in complete oblivion until its deficient publication in 1976 by Unión Musical Española, on which other problematic subsequent editions have been based.

The Trío Arbós has lived with this work since its foundation and recorded it for the IBS label in 2018. To celebrate its 25 anniversary, the Trío Arbós wants to offer to the musical world the critical edition prepared by its pianist Juan Carlos Garvayo. This edition is based on a meticulous study of the manuscript by Granados. An edition that is part of his doctoral dissertation for the Autonomous University of Madrid. It includes also a preface with unknown information on this work and alternative violin and cello parts edited by the members of the Trío Arbós Ferdinando Trematore and José Miguel Gómez.
