Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The music on this sixth album of the piano music of Frederic Mompou presents works recently discovered by Jordi Masó in the Biblioteca de Catalunya's Mompou Collection and at Mompou's home. All were written between 1910 and 1918 and show a highly gifted young composer whose musical idiom was already well formed. "Masó's set is the modern choice, cleanly imaginative" (zarzuela.net).

MusicWeb International
As musical discoveries go this is an intriguing disc. Not only is Mompou unfamiliar to me but the items in this collection - discovered by the composer's wife in 1985 - will also be unknown to you. This world premiere recording is just the kind of release that makes Naxos such a rewarding label; and, as I've discovered, many of these super-budget issues are a steal at any price. As for the Barcelona-born pianist Jordi Masó, I'm pleased to report that although he's also new to me, his playing here is both distinguished and delightful. Factor in a splendid, atmospheric recording and this collection becomes irresistible.

Gramophone
All this music is finely recorded and played with special devotion by Jordi Masó, who also provides a superbly informed essay.

Cyclic Defrost
Naxos have unearthed another 120+ odd minutes worth of early experiments and unpublished manuscripts. ... these early sketches offer valuable insight into his compositional methods and, more importantly, have revealed some beautiful, powerful music.

For listeners new to Mompou this volume of his earliest music makes as fine an introduction as any, revealing a composer with a unique voice but one very attuned to his epoch: strongly influenced by the music of France, particularly the more restrained work of mpressionists Ravel and Debussy, but above all Satie. This a fabulous collection recommended as a corrective to those enchanted by the childishly simplistic pseudo-neo-classical peddled by the likes of Dustin O'Halloran and Max Richter.
