Iberia by Albeniz on display in the Conservatory Library

Hoping to create “Spanish music with a universal accent,” Albeniz composed the suite of twelve piano pieces that comprise Iberia a century ago (December 1905-January 1908). The illustration by Albeniz’s daughter appearing here and on the cover of the featured facsimile edition was originally seen on the publication of the first two of four books of these impressions of Spain.

The Conservatory Library's Special Collections are the focus of the year-long series of exhibits, Bibliorarities. The exhibits are on view in the cases adjacent to the Conservatory Library's Circulation Area during all opening hours. Check out the year-long schedule at Bibliorarities.
