About this Recording

HALFFTER, R.: Chamber Music, Vol. 2 - Giga / 3 piezas breves / 2 Sonatas / Homenaje a Antonio Machado (Madrid Community Orchestra Soloists)

The Spanish-born, Mexican-based composer Rodolfo Halffter’s chamber music embraced influences from both the Old and New Worlds, his compositional approach shifting freely between nationalism, neo-classicism and the avant-garde. The works on this second volume (volume 1 is available on 8.572418) span most of his career, from the two Sonatas de El Escorial (1928) to Epinicio (1979). Whether referring back to the Renaissance or the time of Scarlatti and Soler or exploring the exciting possibilities opened up by modern musical techniques, his music fascinates listeners with its dancing rhythms, delicate sonorities and highly individual character.
