Spanish Dance No. 2 (Oriental)': Enrique Granados (1867 - 1916) A detailed review on compositions performed, on composers and on performers is given here: http://bib.irb.hr/datoteka/372315.Ukrainczyk_GuitarDuo.pdf Audience: about 100 people GUITAR DUO MARKO & NEVEN UKRAINCZYK have started performing immediately after the birth of twins in 1979. when they had their first singing duo, in which Marko had an opening solo for about 10 min. They developed interest in music thanks to their family (septet) which stimulated music-making, especially their mother which was their first guitar teacher. After finishing primary music school ''Vatroslav Lisinski'' in Zagreb at prof. Felix Spiller, they formed rock group Twins, and later Krug Lutaka (The Circle of Puppets), performing mostly original music pieces. During the student days, the guitar was their serious hobby, and they advanced in the guitar styles of classics, fingerstyle and jazz. They recorded one album 'The Sound of Spain' in their own production in home-made studio LiveStudio, while the second album is on its way. They perform at the opening of the art exhibitions, meetings, parties and concerts. Oriental, Spanish Dance No. 2 is the second of the Twelve Spanish Dances from Enrique Granados Op. 37 written for piano (1890). Transcribed for two guitars by Alexandre LaGoya and performed by the greatest guitar duo in the history Ida Presti and her husband Alexandre LaGoya, it became the classical favorite for guitar duos. However, Marko and Neven Duo perform somewhat newly arrangement by Raul Leona. This interpretation in particular introduces guitar techniques like pizzicato and harmonics, which additionally emphasize the moody, sensibility and romanticism of this masterpiece, and once more indicates guitarists love and passion for the Granados music. Pantaléon Enrique Costanzo Granados y Campiña (1867 1916) was a Spanish pianist and composer of classical music. With Albeniz he is a founder of Spanish nationalism music. He was a student of F. Pedrella, and as a pianist mostly performed works of Chopina i Griega. Based on folklore he made individual musical expression with characteristic melody ornamentation. Enrique Granados was also a talented painter in the style of Francisco Goya. Granados wrote piano music, chamber music (a piano quintet, a piano trio, music for violin and piano), songs, zarzuelas, and an orchestral tone poem based on Dante's Divine Comedy. Many of his piano compositions have been transcribed for the classical guitar and are generally considered as some of the most beautiful music in the guitar repertoire. Accepting the recital invitation he missed his boat back to Spain, and boarded the passenger ferry Sussex for Dieppe, France. The Sussex was torpedoed by a German U-boat during World War I. Interesting, he had a morbid fear of water for his entire life and was returning from his first-ever series of ocean voyages. In a failed attempt to save his wife Amparo, Granados jumped out of his lifeboat, and drowned.
