Notes & Reviews:

Australian only release! In 1977 Decca released an LP entitled 'Concertos from Spain' which coupled two contemporary piano concertos - those by Montsalvatge (Concerto Breve, written for Alicia de Larrocha) and Surinach's Piano Concerto. The Surinach - a kind of Spanish Khachaturian - has never before been released on CD. Taking advantage of the extended playing time of a CD, this release includes two other concertante works for piano and orchestra - Turina's Rapsodia sinfonica (made famous by Eileen Joyce) and the Rapsodia espanola by a composer synonymous with de Larrocha: Albeniz. Decca. 2005.
