Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Xavier Montsalvatge was one of the most important composers to emerge from Catalonia in the course of the twentieth century. Where the first volume of Montsalvatge's complete piano music (NXS 8570744) covered works dating from the beginning of the composer's career to his early maturity (1933 - 66), this disc focuses on those he wrote in the last 25 years or so of his life. From El arc de Noe, the composer's response to writing a piece that children who were learning the piano would be able to play, to the huge technical demands and virtuosity of Alborada en Aurinx, this second volume showcases the Catalan composer's eclectic style, its synthesis of neoclassicism, impressionism and free use of serial technique.

"While all of these compositions are impeccable handled, the playing most effective, the pianist's notes all as they should be, and the sound engineering state-of-the-art, readers addicted to nationalistic sounds from the Iberian peninsula should be forewarned. There is little of that here, but what remains is good enough to reside in this writer's collection."-American Record Guide
