About this Recording

HOMS, J.: Guitar and Guitar Duo Music (Complete) (Garrobé, Escobar)

Joaquim Homs is recognised as the leading pioneer of twelve-tone composition in Spain, but the products of his long life and career were always grounded in romantic expressiveness. On this album of his complete guitar works, French impressionism can be heard in the earliest, Suite d’Homenatges, and the influence of Bartók in Entre dues línies. His atonal works of the 1950s absorbed the spirit of Webern while still communicating Spanish poetic warmth, but his definitive style emerged after the tragically early death of his wife in 1967, with works such as the Soliloquies exploring introspection, concision and silence.
