Enrique Granados’ ‘Danse Espagnole’ transcribed by the great Austrian violinist Fritz Kreisler, who wrote a heart breaking account of his time at the front. Granados died off the Kent coast, on his way back to Spain from making piano rolls in New York (pictured at top), and giving a recital at the White House for Woodrow Wilson. He and his wife were passengers on the SS Sussex, which was torpedoed shortly after it left Folkestone in 1916.
