Isaac Albéniz (Isaac Albéniz)

Isaac Albéniz

Isaac Albéniz was born on May 26, 1860, in Camprodón, Spain.  His musical gifts were apparent early, as evidenced by his first public piano performance at age 4.  When he was 6, Isaac’s mother took him to Paris to study privately with Antoine Marmontel.  In 1868 his family moved to Madrid where was acclaimed Spain’s greatest prodigy.  Young Isaac soon became impatient with his studies, and legend has it that he ran away from home to perform in South and North America.
