Who was Enrique Granados?

Enrique Granados was a Spanish composer and pianist born on July 27, 1867 in Lleida, Spain. He was one of the leading figures in Spanish classical music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and is known for his piano works, chamber music, and operas. He was also a virtuoso pianist and performed widely in Spain and Europe. Unfortunately, Granados died on March 24, 1916, when the passenger ship "HMS Sussex" he was traveling on was sunk by a German submarine during World War I. The ship was traveling from Spain to England in 1916. Granados was on his way to a concert tour in the United States at the time but did not survive the sinking of the ship. His death was a great loss to Spanish music and to the wider classical music world, and his works continue to be performed and appreciated today.

About Eixample area

Eixample is generally a very popular place to stay in Barcelona for it's architecture, charm and wide selection of tourist sights, restaurants and shops.

The Eixample district of Barcelona is the name of the 19th century modernist area of Barcelona that was developed when the old walled medieval city became too overcrowded.

In the late 19th century the old Barcelona city walls were demolished and a new part of the city called the Eixample was built. There is only one remaining piece of Barcelona's medieval walls which is part of the former Royal shipyards - Drassanes Reials - and now home to the Barcelona Maritime Museum.

The name Eixample actually means 'extension' in the Catalan language. In Spanish the name of this area is Ensanche, but that is rarely used these days.
