MOMPOU, F.: Songs (Complete), Vol. 1 - Song of the Soul (Mathéu, Masó)

Frederic Mompou’s purely intuitive music has a unique place in Catalan history. He was initially inspired by the music of Fauré, but the early La cançó de l’àvia also represents an affinity with traditional Catalan folk-tunes, and his Quatre mélodies reflect a love of brevity. Mompou’s beautiful Damunt de tu només les flors [Track 1] is one of his most famous creations, while the sombre Cinq mélodies sur des textes de Paul Valéry is probably his greatest vocal work. Jordi Masó’s six-volume set of the complete piano works of Mompou has been widely acclaimed.
