University of California“I have been deeply impressed by the originality and methodological rigor of Carolina Estrada’s work. She has made important discoveries about a central component of Granados’s oeuvre, Valses poéticos, particularly in relation to the composer’s original intentions, through a very intelligent and systematic examination of both published and recorded sources. Not only does this research add greatly to our understanding of Granados’s creative process but it also provides a very useful model for how such work can be done in the future, with other pieces and composers.”
