Product Description

Spanish - and Catalan music in particular - was hugely enriched by the contribution made to its development in the latter part of the twentieth-century by Xavier Montsalvatge. Both as a composer and critic, his influence was widespread, and his music stylistically broad. Folia daliniana explores elements of fantasy and French-tinged refinement whilst one of his major song cycles, Cinco invocaciones al Crucificado, is a passionately intense meditation on Christ's suffering. Whether rhapsodic or invoking rhythmic or popular dance forms, Montsalvatges music remains brilliant, clear and individualistic

Review

The Spanish composer Xavier Montsalvatge is no household name, but you couldn't ask for a better introduction to his elegant, refined and piquant oeuvre than this vibrant collection by New York City's Perspectives Ensemble. A well-balanced selection of pieces composed from 1969 to 1995, the disc is further abetted by the mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke's ravishing voice and the violinist Tim Fain's bravura solo work. --Steve Smith, New York Times Artsbeat
