Notes & Reviews:

Manuel de Falla’s small oeuvre includes symphonic, instrumental, vocal and theatrical music. Yet for each genre the piano is clearly Falla’s source of inspiration, Therefore a recording of Falla’s complete piano music is both an ideal entry into his musical world for beginners and the key to understand his orchestral and other music for connoisseurs. Considered one of the most brilliant musicians of his generation, Juan Carlos Rodríguez is a pianist known for his sincerity towards music and composers while always placing his fine instrumental technique at the service of the work.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The artwork claims that this is Falla's complete piano music, but it excludes the transcriptions of orchestral pieces like the 'Ritual Fire Dance' and the dances from La Vida Breve. Still it does include a transcription of the Debussy Homage, originally for guitar. The program also contains the Cuatro Piezas Espaola, Fantasia Baetica, and several smaller pieces. Rodriguez has a velvet touch in the quieter moments, but his tone gets pushy in the louder passages. His approach is very secco.
