MONTSALVATGE, X.: Piano Music, Vol. 2 (Maso) - El Arca de Noe / 5 Ocells en Llibertat / Concierto de Albayzin

Xavier Montsalvatge was one of the most important composers to emerge from Catalonia in the course of the twentieth century. Where the first volume of Montsalvatge’s complete piano music (8.570744) covered works dating from the beginning of the composer’s career to his early maturity (1933–66), this disc focuses on those he wrote in the last 25 years or so of his life. From El arc de Noé, the composer's response to writing a piece that children who were learning the piano would be able to play, to the huge technical demands and virtuosity of Alborada en Aurinx, this second volume showcases the Catalan composer’s eclectic style, its synthesis of neoclassicism, impressionism and free use of serial technique.
