TURINA, J.: Piano Music, Vol. 4 (Masó) - Ninerias / Miniaturas / Jardins d'enfants

Along with Falla, Albéniz, Granados and Mompou, Joaquín Turina made an outstanding contribution to Spanish piano repertoire. This fourth volume of Turina’s complete piano music focuses on the child’s universe. The two sets of Niñerías both evoke the composer’s own Andalusian childhood memories and capture images of his own children playing in the yard or among the streets and small squares of some unidentified town. Miniaturas inhabit the childhood fantasy world of Debussy’s Children’s Corner, while Jardín de niños (Jardins d’enfants), dedicated to the composer’s daughter, recreates a world of tenderness and fantasy but also one of charm and great humour. Previous volumes in this series are available on 8.557150, 8.557438 and 8.557684.
