Charles Ives (1874-1954) The Things Our Fathers Loved (1917-1921)
The years 2016 and 2017 mark a double-anniversary for the great Spanish composer Enrique Granados: the 100th anniversary of his untimely death in 1916, and the 150th anniversary of his birth in 1867. Granados is often cited particularly as a composer for the piano, but his lesser-known songs are also a seminal achievement.
