Enrique Granados

Enrique Granados (1867 - 1916) was a Spanish composer and pianist of classical music which is considered to be of a uniquely Spanish style. As a young man he studied in Barcelona.

Many of his compositions have been transcribed for the classical guitar and are some of the most beautiful music in the guitar repertoire e.g. Dedicatoria, Danza No. 5.

Granados drowned after jumping out of a lifeboat to rescue his wife, following the torpedoing of his ship, the Sussex, by the German navy as part of the German unrestricted submarine warfare policy during World War I.

Granados was an important influence on at least two other important Spanish composers and musicians, Manuel de Falla and Pablo Casals.
