Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
I'm completely bewildered by the fact that these charming romantic miniatures for piano by Manuel Ponce are so under represented in the catalog, especially given how attractive and immediately appealing they are... Until now that is, with this splendid release from Spanish pianist Alvaro Cendoya... Listen to the three brief sample movements that are provided with this review. It's quite likely that you too, will be smitten. ... read more ...

Manuel Ponce assimilated a wide range of styles and influences, including European-influenced Romanticism, indigenous idioms and a more advanced harmonic language. This album demonstrates his range of styles over a period of three decades or more, from around 1909 to 1941. This is the first of eight volumes devoted to Ponce's complete piano music.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This is the first installment in a projected 8- disc series encompassing the whole of Ponce's output for piano. The project is in good hands with Alvaro Cendoya at the keyboard - a Basque pianist who has been recognized for his interpretations of Spanish and Latin American music. He demonstrates skill and artistry in bringing to life the colors and contours of Ponce's style. The music is presented in near-chronological order, which led me to wonder how the other records will be structured. This record contains some very compelling music, especially the late Cuatro Danzas Mexicanas. These are more stylized, musically adventurous offerings. Each of these begins with a fast display of virtuosity, followed by a slow, deliberate section (the dance proper). Cendoya's playing is taut and impressive. Anyone with a special interest in Latin American music - and Ponce devotees especially - will be sure to hear this.
