Suite Compostelana


Franz Halász (guitar)

In the latter half of the 1800s there was a resurgence of Catalan culture, and during the period that followed Barcelona produced many outstanding performers and composers, including Enrique Granados, Ricardo Viñes, Alicia de Larrocha and Pablo Casals. On this disc of Catalan ’songs and dances’, Franz Halász presents us with three other names worthy of inclusion on this list: Frederic Mompou, Miquel Llobet and Joan Manén. Mompou is certainly best known for his piano music, and the Cançó i dansa No. 10 was actually composed for that instrument. The composer made this guitar transcription himself, however, suggesting that he may well have had that instrument in mind when writing for the piano. Both Cançó i dansa No. 13, based on two traditional Catalan songs, and the Suite Compostelana are original guitar works. Some fifteen years older than Mompou, Llobet was a guitarist who toured internationally, but he also composed. His arrangements of Catalan folk songs are among his most enduring contributions to the guitar repertoire. These tunes were well known to the Barcelona public in Llobet’s day, and arrangements of songs like La filadora (‘The Spinner Woman’), Cançó del lladre (‘Song of the Thief’) and La Nit de Nadal (‘Christmas Eve’) received an enthusiastic reception. Closing the programme is the Fantasia-Sonata by Joan Manén, a musical prodigy who went on to enjoy an international career as a virtuoso violinist. Manén was also a versatile composer, who with this piece, dedicated to Andrés Segovia, created a fine contribution to the literature for guitar.

“[the Fantasia-Sonata is] a substantial single-movement work of dramatic contrasts that elicits some of Halász’s most thrilling and colourful playing. But the Mompou, next in order of scale and substance, receives an equally compelling performance by virtue of Halász’s ability to switch gears so convincingly…pieces like ‘El noi de la mare’…become more bittersweet remembrances of things past than mere miniatures for salon or studio.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2016

Clélia Iruzun (piano)

A follow-up to the successful and very well received first volume of piano music by Federico Mompou [SOMM0121], Volume 2 continues with another thirty tracks of hauntingly beautiful and memorable music by this unique Spanish composer and pianist, who died in 1987 aged 94. A recluse who rarely appeared in public, Mompou wrote music which since its first appearance, over 100 years ago, has been widely appreciated for its wonderful fusion of colour, mood and intimate characterisation. The music in this collection is wide-ranging and admirably supports the sense of atmosphere which so distinguished the first volume. With her combination of colourful Brazilian spirit and musicianship, London-based pianist Clélia Iruzun is one of the most exciting musicians to emerge onto the international scene in recent years. Clélia has won major prizes in her native Brazil and in international competitions such as the Santander and Zaragoza in Spain. Her career has taken her in most countries in Europe, the Americas and Asia, as well as the major London venues. She has also appeared several times on radio and television in several countries, including broadcasts for BBC Radio 3.

“Like Erik Satie, the Catalonian Mompou (d 1987) was a quirky miniaturist, veering between the deliberately simplistic and something closer to late Debussy…Iruzun plays all with an aptly gentle touch” Sunday Times, 17th January 2016

“Iruzun’s sensitive interpretations take Mompou’s stark introspection at face value…she unravels the two little gems based on ‘Au claire de la lune’, the exquisite Trios Variations and the elusive 1919 Tango straightforwardly and simply, yet with carefully calibrated nuance” Gramophone Magazine, May 2016

Olena Kushpler (piano)

“To achieve a maximum level of expressiveness with a minimum of means” was the defined goal of the Spanish pianist and composer Frederico Mompou. He was championed by Enrique Granados, but it was in early 1921 when his piano teacher Ferdinand Motte-Lacroix presented the works of his student to the public that Mompou made his breakthrough.

These works are performed by Olena Kushpler, a Ukrainian pianist whose concert performances are regularly greeted with enthusiasm by audiences and the media.

“Kushpler has a warm tone and good instincts for the music's plangency and dreamy qualities. Nor is she innocent of its tangier, dance-like vitality...One can enjoy Kushpler's performances alongside the composer's very different recordings” MusicWeb International, December 2012

Guitar lovers are lucky enough to have their pick of repertoire, spanning the entire globe as well as many centuries. Never before, however, have they been able to listen to their favourite pieces all in one place – from Baroque to 20th Century, from Latin America to north Germany. This ambitious and expansive set of 40 CDs brings together a wide range of works for solo guitar guaranteed to satisfy those eager to explore repertoire both known and unknown.

We start our journey with Robert de Visée, born around 30 years before J.S. Bach. His Suites – which may also have been played on a lute or theorbo – are fascinating examples of some of the only existing French Baroque music for guitar. Bach himself did not write as much music for the stringed instrument as he did for keyboard; however, the transcriptions of his violin Partitas work perfectly on the guitar. Likewise, Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti have been transcribed here from the keyboard for the guitar. The Italian composer worked in Spain for the majority of his life, and the Spanish influences he picked up there make a smooth transition to the stringed instrument.

The Classical and Romantic eras saw a period of development. Fernando Sor, one of the most important figures in guitar music, elevated the guitar from a 'tavern' instrument to one that commanded respect. He himself contributed a vast amount to the guitar canon – such as his Études – alongside the Italians Ferdinando Carulli and Luigi Rinaldo Legnani and Sor's pupil, Napoléon Coste, who became the leading guitarist in his native France.

Sor's 20th-century successor is arguably Francisco Tárrega, considered the father of the guitar. His technical innovations helped to raise the profile of the guitar as a solo instrument, as he successfully persuaded Antonio de Torres Jurado to construct a large instrument suitable for use in concert halls. The Spaniards dominated this period – alongside Tárrega were Isaac Albéniz (who never actually wrote specifically for the guitar, but whose music has been arranged a number of times), Joaquín Turina, Joaquín Rodrigo and Manuel de Falla. Rodrigo's homage to Falla – the Invocación y danza – shows the composer's recognition of Falla as one of the greatest influences on Spanish composers working in the latter half of the 20th century.

Next, we travel across the Atlantic to investigate one of the most important locations for the creation of guitar music: Latin America. Composers working here took particular inspiration from indigenous influences, including the Paraguyan Agustín Barrios Mangoré and the Argentinian Ástor Piazzolla. Manuel Ponce, a leading Mexican composer, wrote his famous Estrellita, which soon became a beloved Mexican folk song. It is present here in a sparkling arrangement for solo guitar.

The 20th century saw the expansion of the guitar across the globe. The repertoire grew widely, thanks to composers from such diverse places as Russia, Poland and the Netherlands. German composer Hans Werner Henze wrote his original Royal Winter Music, based on Shakespearean characters, in the late 1970s. Jewish composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco, born in Italy, spent much of his career in Hollywood, after fleeing the Nazi threat in Europe in 1939. He still wrote much classical music alongside his works for the big screen, including his well known Les Guitares bien tempérées. Dutch composer Henk Badings was discredited after the war for having cooperated with the Nazis. A recent renewed interest in his music has resulted in this recording of his Twelve Preludes for solo guitar – a world premiere for Brilliant Classics, first released in 2012.

This set features performers of international quality. Among them are: the Paganini expert Luigi Attademo; Cristiano Porqueddu, who will be performing in New York's Carnegie Hall in July 2017; Frédéric Zigante; Giulio Tampalini; and many more besides. There are numerous world premiere recordings, of works both modern and older, thanks to recent rediscoveries. The guitars used range from carefully crafted modern instruments to period instruments, including the 'Sabionari' guitar by Antonio Stradivari. The release will be sure to satisfy both guitar aficionados and those looking to dip in and out of a diverse mixture of guitar music from around the globe.

The most extensive guitar collection available! This 40 CD set spans several centuries of guitar music: from the Baroque where the guitar gained preference over its ancestor the Lute, to the Classical Period in which the instrument was emancipated and gained its rightful place as a serious concert instrument, through Spain, its country of origin, right into the 20th century where famous composers extended its sonic possibilities to the very borders of the spectrum. A treasure trove of unprecedented scope and substance, for both connoisseur and music lover, performed by world class guitarists!

Recorded between 1996 and 2015.

Contains liner notes written by Philip Borg-Wheeler specially for this release.

The booklet presents the necessary background to the music, putting each composer in his historic perspective.
