Notes & Reviews:

Leonardo Balada, the Catalan composer who went to New York in 1956 to study composition, has been a powerful creative force for more than three decades. These accessible and stimulating pieces span the composer's career, from the romantic early Music in Four Movements to the Mini-Miniatures of 2010, which are dedicated to Pablo Amorós. Preludis Obstinants, commissioned and premièred by the great pianist Alicia de Larrocha, was described as 'a bold five-part piece of thunder... each section suggesting how much the instrument can shape creative imagination.' (The Philadelphia Inquirer) A prize-winner in various national and international competitions, Pablo Amorós has specialized in romantic and contemporary repertoire. He has played in most of the Spanish cities, including Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca, and Córdoba, and has also been invited to play in Italy, France and England.
