Notes & Reviews:

Not only was Joaquín Turina part of an important and influential group of early twentieth-century Spanish composers such as Albéniz, Falla and Granados, he possessed a beautiful and individual compositional style. Chilean-born soprano Carolina Ullrich won First Prize in the 2008-09 Young Concert Artists International Auditions as well as other prestigious awards.

"The Chilean-born soprano, Carolina Ullrich has the tonal quality in keeping with the nature of the music. Turina’s piano role brings colour and vivacity to the scores, the Brazilian pianist, Debora Halász, shapes the scores with total understanding, and when required, as in the Dos canciones, shows an enviable keyboard skill. The disc comes from the admirable Bavarian Radio." -David's Review Corner

The Tres sonetos, Op. 54 are also inspired. Who can sit still while listening to the dancing ¡Vade retro!? Wow! But the whole group is really good. Vocalizaciones consists of some delicious miniatures... Those of you who are already under the Turina spell won't need any further sales promotion tricks from me to invest in this super budget issue.

American Record Guide
Turina's songs are not heard anywhere near as often as they ought to be, so that at least makes this a welcome release. Carolina Ullrich a stellar performer.

The Naxos label has done a superb job in reviving the largely moribund fortunes of the music of Spanish composer Joaqufn Turina, one of the major Iberian figures of the period between the two world wars. Turina was a conservative who worked largely in traditional forms, but the Spanish feeling in his music ran deep, and the passionate mood of his music contrasts with the essentially neoclassic structures of Rodrigo. The songs here were all composed in the 1920s and 1930s.

The young Chilean soprano Carolina Ullrich has both the grain of voice and the big top to handle them, and there are lots of attractive settings of high-quality poetry. The Dos Canciones, Op. 38 (1927) are highly recommended. Turina sets poetry by Cristina de Arteaga (1902 - 1984), who wrote one volume of poems before becoming a nun; in Lo mejor de amor (The Best of Love, track 9) he matches Arteaga's passionate text with a nearly operatic melody. That work has a substantial piano introduction, and throughout the set the boundary between voice and instrument is effectively crossed; the seven Vocalizaciones, Op. 74, are short embodiments of a single musical idea, quite unlike more extensive wordless vocal pieces by other composers. There isn't quite the variety to sustain a session of hearing 30 of these songs at a time, but the set is recommended to lovers of Spanish song and especially to singers; Ullrich is clearly an exciting talent to watch.
