The promising young composer Antonio Jose Martinez Palacios, known in musical circles simply as Antonio Jose, was executed, a victim of the Spanish Civil War, in the same year as Federico Garcia Lorca. Rooted in the folk songs and rhythms of the composer'

I lived in the region of La Mancha in central Spain for five years, and the impressionistic music of the "Sinfonia Castellana" really evokes for me a sense of the countryside of that region (even thought the composer was from a different part of Spain). I particularly love the third movement, a nocturne, in which the composer distills the essence of a quiet night in rural Spain. The melodies in that movement are deeply touching-- sublime, sad, imbued with a sense of mysticism, conveying in a most remarkable way that sense of profound stillness that fills the dusty, winding streets of a Spanish village in the wee hours of the night when everyone is asleep and the moon floats silently overhead, casting its ghostly light on the blank walls of the houses and on the vineyards and olive orchards that lie beyond the edge of the town. I feel transported to such a beautiful setting whenever I listen to that third movement-- it brings back memories. The music on this CD is really enjoyable, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes the music of De Falla and other Spanish composers who incorporated impressionistic elements into their very Spanish idiom.

Antonio José Martinez Palacios - known simply as Antonio José - was executed during the Spanish Civil war in 1936. And as in several cases where the composer lead a tragic but colorful life, this disc of his orchestral music has received some rave reviews in certain quarters. I suppose I should add a sober streak here. Now, there is no doubt that Antonio José was a hugely talented composer who could very well have attained genuine importance had he been allowed to live. And this release contains several colorful, even exciting, works. But there are no masterpieces here - in fact, none of the works are even that close.

That is not to say that they aren't enjoyable, and indeed sometimes immensely so. Sinfonia Castellana is a colorful, impressionistic folk music-inspired score that will appeal to anyone who enjoys Falla. It is a very worthwhile piece and surely the best work on the disc. The rest is written in a similar language; the Suite Ingenua adds a touch of neo-classicism and is rather anodyne, but the Evocaciones are, well, evocative and certainly attractive, and the shorter pieces (piano music orchestrated by the composer himself or others) are worthwhile but in the end forgettable.

Nothing to complain about with regards to performances or sound quality. At Naxos price, you needn't hesitate about adding this one to your collection, especially for the Sinfonia Castellana. But don't expect any timeless masterpieces.
