Info for Federico Mompou: Oeuvres pour piano
I encountered the music of Federico Mompou by chance one day, listening to Radio Clásica as a boy. Unknown to me, so wonderful, so full of unique harmonies, mysterious sonorities, colours, sensuality, ‘swing’, freedom, bells – and imbued with a truth possessed only by folk music. It was Federico Mompou playing his Cançons i Danses.” (Luis Fernando Pérez)
