One of the most important Spanish pianists today, Joaquín Achúccaro has made landmark recordings of the Goyescas and the Nuits dans les Jardins d’Espagne.
It would be a mistake however to categorize him as a mere specialist of Spanish music.
German music features prominently in his repertoire, Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann in particular
Extraordinarily attentive to the specificities of Schumann’s rhythms, Joaquín Achúccaro’s recording of the Fantaisie and the Kreisleriana highlights the essence of these works, made even more fascinating by the exceptional richness of his touch.
Fire and poetry, the allies of expression.
