Notes & Reviews:

The piano music of Federico Mompou (1893-1987) holds a unique place in 20-th century piano literature. The apparent simplicity of Mompou's music with its affinity to na´ve "folk" elements - popular songs and dances, children's games, spells and incantations - is deceptive: like Satie - the composer with whom he is most often compared - there is always a sense of a greater complexity hidden just below the surface. However Mompou himself was uninterested in analyzing his music, claiming, " I don't know where it comes from - that's one of the secrets of art" and in describing his style as primitivista, he signalled a desire to return to first principles - a "recommencement" as he described it. Although he spent many years in Paris and was close to the galaxy of composers living in that city in the 1920s - becoming more or less and an honorary member of les Six - he remained virtually immune to outside influences.
