Enrique Granados, or Enric in his native Catalunya, was known as a piano virtuoso in his lifetime.

His piano works are still well-loved now, but that is not all he wrote.

Songs, chamber and orchestral music all appear in Erica Challis's programme on Granados.

The composer, pianist and teacher's legacy also includes the school he founded, which still exists today.
