Notes & Reviews:

Montsalvatge was one on the most influential musical figures in Catalan music during the late the 20th century. He explored virtually every musical form, but many of his most significant works were written after his discovery of the art of the Antilles. He was fascinated by West Indian music and believed that it 'was itself originally Spanish, exported to the Caribbean, and then re-imported'

The Guardian, September 2012
The performances are immensely persuasive. Ruby Hughes sounds suitably seraphic in Simfonia de Rèquiem, but the vocal honours go to Clara Mouriz, tremendous in Cinco Canciones.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Sound and playing are quite good; notes in English, German, and French, with Catalan texts translated into those three languages.
