Déodat de Sévérac was a pupil of Vincent d’Indy in Paris, who approved of the characteristically French early Sonate, which includes a moving Elégie reflecting on recent family deaths. Le Chant de la Terre describes Virgil’s tense rural epic, the Georgics. The French Baroque is revived in the nostalgic Stances à Madame de Pompadour, and Pippermint-Get is a lighthearted waltz which takes its name from a mint liqueur. American Record Guide has praised Jordi Masó for his “prismatic colour and understated musicality” (Vol. 2: 8572428).

“Catalan pianist Jordi Masó's personable nature comes out in his playing: relaxed and unassumingly expressive, his approach is intelligent without over-intellectualising, listener-friendly without patronising...money well spent by any fan of elegant, atmospheric and tuneful music well played.”
