Description: We had a disc of mostly songs last month but this one is entirely piano music, of three distinct types: the eight Preludes from 1921-25 which are in a conservative, romantic European style, a group of salon style pieces with some local color (from various early and middle years of Miramontes' career) and a group of late pieces (late 1940s and early 1950s) which are arrangements of typical Mexican songs and intended to instill a feeling of nationalism in children. Another piano volume will follow next month. Bernardo Jiménez Casillas (piano).
