Notes & Reviews:

Jordi Masó's critically acclaimed survey of Turina's complete piano music continues to unearth exciting discoveries. Turina's gift for evocative writing is explored in the early and little-known Coins de Séville which fuses Andalusían folk music with French impressionism to remarkable effect. The virtuosic La leyenda de la Giralda evokes Seville Cathedral's bell-tower and symbol of the city in four vivid episodes. The streets, sounds, and rhythms of Turina's native city infuse much of his music and in Por las calles de Sevilla and his final work, Desde mi terraza , their lure is felt with a fierce intensity.

American Record Guide, January/February 2014
In Volume 9 of his project to record Turina's complete piano oeuvre, Maso brilliantly advocates a fascinating. The works on this program, evoking Turina's native city of Seville, works of art, literature, and even other contemporary Spanish composers, reveal the distinct voice. Maso delivers all of this with an easy fluidity, expressing the spirit of the works. There are detailed liner notes. The sound is clean and warm. Maso's remarkable versatility and vibrancy secure interest in the project. I admire his dedication in promoting other Spanish composers past and present, from Joseph Soler to Benet Casablancas. I look forward to future volumes.
