Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This 4-CD set contains the complete piano music of Catalan composer Frederic Mompou (1893-1987) performed by Adolf Pla, who has been a long time advocate of the composer's music.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
Catalan composer Frederic Mompou (1893- 1987) left behind an impressive catalog of piano works, presented complete here on four discs. After early training in Barcelona, Mompou lived for 30 years in Paris, where his style picked up a French influence. A fondness for the lush harmonies of Debussy, and the elegant simplicity of Satie are particularly audible. Distinctly Iberian characteristics are present, especially a modal harmonic language, contributing a folk-like quality to the music. Pla's performance consistently communicates the depth of Mompou's ideas. The playing is sensitive and assured. He captures all the subtle shadings of the music; exploring a wide range of colors, the rendering is expressive. The recording quality is good, the piano resonant, with a clear tone. In the end, of course, this package will be purchased for the music and the performance; the performance is very strong, and the music is deeply rewarding.
