A Madrid native, Torán created The Water Recital as an homage to the works of Albéniz and a tribute to friend, mentor, and fellow pianist Alicia de Larrocha, who passed away in September of 2009. Albéniz, Alicia's favorite composer, was also one of the most influential musical figures of Spain. His most famous work is the suite for piano "Iberia." The work is comprised of four books of three pieces each and creates a musical journey through Spain and its folklore. It is one of the most technically difficult works in the repertoire for piano.
