Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Javier Perianes, described by the Buffalo News as "a pianist of such sensitivity and sensibility that he is already one of the greatest of his generation," invites us to discover the keyboard works of a composer who, like himself, was a native of Spain. The heir to Scarlatti in many respects, the Hispano-Neapolitan composer Manuel Blasco de Nebra (1750-1784) combined the musical flavors of his own natural heritage with the popular forms of the day. The sonatas and pastorals presented on this disc shed light on the multiple facets of Blasco de Nebra's creative genius, alas cut short all too soon: he died at the age of just thirty-four.

The Independent
Javier Perianes's playing is finely articulated

Gramophone Magazine
[Perianes] has a taste for this kind of quiet but deep expression, and his natural introversion, delicate touch and controlled tone are ideal for the still waters of Nebra's adagios...[His] concentration and refinement certainly make a strong case for the introduction of [Nebra's] music into the modern piano repertoire.

The Guardian
[A] beautiful disc...performances are excellent, communicating a real sense of revelation, of bringing a distinctive composer's voice to a 21st-century audience for the first time
