Jordi Masó’s acclaimed series of Joaquin Turina’s Piano Music continues with the evocative Spanish Tales, Souvenirs of Old Spain and Silhouettes, consolidating the young pianist’s reputation as a leading interpreter of this distinctively Iberian repertoire. “Jordi Masó is one of Spain’s leading pianists.” (MusicWeb on Vol 1, 8.557150), “Masó, as always, is excellent” (Scherzo on Vol 2, 8.557438), “You can't go wrong with Masó…he is very sympathetic” (Fanfare on Vol 3, 8.557684), “He can make a melody sing” (MusicWeb on Vol 4, 8.570026).

Jordi Masó also joins Eva León on a forthcoming Naxos recording of Turina’s Music for Violin and Piano.
