Label: Columna Musica
Description: Unknown outside of Catalonia, this composer/pianist, who died of peritonitis (not from anything having to do with the Spanish Civil War) appears to have never left his home territory. His music, as represesented here by a group of songs to Catalan texts, two piano suites (1928-30 and 1936) and the quintet (also 1936), is clearly inspired by the music of Debussy and Ravel and of the composers they influenced. No texts. Rosa Mateu (soprano), Albert Guinovart (piano), Quartet Alla Breve.
