Notes & Reviews:

MusicWeb International, February 2015
This is a delightful disc that should be heard by everyone with an interest in art-songs.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2015
There is no escaping the composer's inner flame of inspiration...Padulles's warm, youthful tenor makes an attractive guide to this intriguing repertoire...Do not expect memorable tunes or gripping narratives. Mompou's art is that of the Impressionist a composer of half-lights and reflected images.

The notable Catalan tenor Roger Padulles presents a studio recording entirely devoted to the beautiful songs of his great Catalan-Spanish compatriot, Federico Mompou (1893-1987). Though Mompou's fame rests largely on his solo piano works, which he himself recorded in inimitable and definitive fashion, his many songs comprise the other genre for which he is recognized as a 20th c. master. Noted accompanist and broadcaster Iain Burnside accompanies Mr. Padulles. Presenting the major singers of today and the stars of tomorrow, the Rosenblatt Recitals are London's only world-class season of opera recitals. A new partnership with Opus Arte will see releases of several CDs per year, based predominantly on studio recordings with occasional bonus live tracks.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2015
Burnside brings out all the colours of Mompou's chromatic ornamentation, overlaying a firmly tonal or modal base, and is particularly adept, as in the Canto de la fira, at elucidating Mompou's intricate part-writing.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
I am captivated by the magical mood these songs create, and Catalan tenor Padulles is a fine communicator of the varied moods of these songs. It's no surprise that Burnside offers his usual superb collaboration. The two of them convey the serenity of the songs when that is needed and the fire of the songs when that needs to come out. Padulles's voice expresses the dreaminess of the music one moment and its ardor the next.
