A rich musical heritage and vibrant contemporary culture intersect in Catalunya in north-eastern Spain.
Granados’s long-lost masterpiece Song of the Stars is comparable to a virtuoso piano concerto with chorus and organ rather than orchestra, gloriously combining Romantic-Modernist poetry with post-Wagnerian harmonies.
The internationally famous cellist Pau Casals also composed a small body of very beautiful music, including the deeply spiritual choral works on this disc.
Morera’s The Nightingale and Blancafort’s Love Song are evocative of their Catalan texts, while Oltra’s Echo and Prelude explore themes of memory and hope through images of nature.
