Mompou: Piano Music
All World Premiere Recordings
The music on this sixth album of the piano music of Frederic Mompou presents works recently discovered by Jordi Masó in the Biblioteca de Catalunya’s Mompou Collection and at Mompou’s home. All were written between 1910–18 and show a highly gifted young composer whose musical idiom was already well formed.
The recording complements Masó’s previous volumes released on Naxos (8554332, 8554448, 8554570, 8554727 and 8570956). “Masó is a strong pianist completely at home in this idiom” American Record Guide.
“Invaluable not only for scholars who will note the beginnings and first thoughts of later mature offerings such as Suburbis and Impresiones intimas but most of all for lovers of a composer who proved that "it is working with limits that mastery reveals itself" (Goethe)...All this music is finely recorded and played with special devotion by Jordi Maso, who also provides a superbly informed essay.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2011

Federico Mompou: Piano Music Volume 2
All the pieces presented here remained unpublished during Mompou’s lifetime. Many of them came to light in 2008 when his apartment was being cleared out and three folders were unearthed filled with manuscripts containing his first attempts at composition. Thanks to the support of the Frederic Mompou Foundation, most of these scores have now been published. The rest of the programme comes from a smaller collection of material housed in the Bibliotheca Nacional de Catalunya’s Mompou Collection.
Usually despatched in 4 - 5 working days.
