”La maja de Goya” (“Goya’s woman”)
Julian Bream, guitar
Spanish composer Granados’ preoccupation with the life and work and Francisco Goya was fueled in part by the composer’s own considerable abilities as a painter.
Granados died before reaching his 50th birthday; in 1916 he and his wife were aboard a passenger ferry which was sunk by a German U-Boot in the English Channel. He tried unsuccessfully to save his wife when he saw her floundering in the water, and the pair were both drowned.
