Midnight on the 24th November 1915, and the sound of guitars and mandolins emanates from the port of Barcelona...guitarist Miguel Llobet is leaving for New York with his close friend EnricGranados, and a group of his students have arrived to bid them farewell. Granados would never again return to Spain, drowning in the English Channel following a stopover in the UK after his boat was torpedoed by a German U-boat. A native of Lleida, Catalonia, like Granados, the pre-eminent guitarist Carles Trepat marks the Granados centenary with a programme based on his 2015 album Granados-Llobet, 100 anys d'un viatge, exploring the relationship between the two composers, including Llobet's transcriptions of Granados' piano pieces. He performs on an 1892 Antonio Torres instrument with gut and silk strings.

Enric Granados (1867-1916) is one of the greatest composers, well known for his zarzuelas, his piano works like ‘12 Danzas españolas’ and the opera ‘Goyescas’, inspired by paintings and tapestries by Goya, and most probably his masterpiece. 

Admired on both sides of the Atlantic, he and his wife died tragically in waters of the English Channel when the ship they were travelling in from New York was torpedoed by a German submarine. His death was a stunning loss for the international music elite. 2016, the year that marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the Catalan composer, has already seen numerous events organised in London in homage to the anniversary.

This event is one of the flagship Granados centenary concerts and other events taking place across the UK this Autumn.
