Mompou - Montsalvatge / Ginastera: Don Perlimplín - Estancia

Xavier Montsalvatge (1912 - 2002)
Alberto Ginastera (1916 - 1983)
Frederic Mompou (1893 - 1987)

The ballet Don Perlimplín was the result of close collaboration between composers Frederic Mompou and Xavier Montsalvatge. After its premiere the work was not performed again until 1992, when the Cadaqués Orchestra revived it at the Festival Castell de Peralada. This is quite possibly the only available recording of the orchestral version. It is performed by the Joven Orquesta Nacional de España under the baton of Gianandrea Noseda. The ballet Estancia, by the Argentinean composer Alberto Ginastera, introduces elements with traditional roots to strengthen the storyline. The common ground shared by the two pieces as regards genre and style gives the album greater cohesion. The recordings were made live at the Auditorio in Zaragoza in 1998.

Customer reviews

"It's wonderful to discover such a cogent piece of stage music by this master of the piano miniature, excellently played by young Spanish forces under Noseda's firm but sensitive hand. The Ginastera suite provides a rhythmically pulsing, red-blooded contrast, and the disc as a whole is a real winner."
