Notes & Reviews:

Frederic Mompou's purely intuitive music has a unique place in Catalan history. He was initially inspired by the music of Faure, but the early La canco de l'avia also represents an affinity with traditional Catalan folk-tunes, and his Quatre melodies reflect a love of brevity. Mompou's beautiful Damunt de tu nomes les flors [Track 1] is one of his most famous creations, while the sombre Cinq melodies sur des textes de Paul Valery is probably his greatest vocal work. Jordi Maso's six-volume set of the complete piano works of Mompou has been widely acclaimed.

Marta MathTu sings with appropriately affecting simplicity, with translucent accompaniment from Jordi Mas=.
