, one of the leading record labels today, has just published the complete works for piano by Benet Casablancas
, performed by Jordi Masó and Miquel Villalba.
In recent years, Casablancas (born in 1956 in the town of Sabadell, near Barcelona) has confirmed his status as one of the most active and important composers in Spain today.
His solid background in music and the humanities has enabled him to develop a highly personal language that, despite being firmly based on knowledge of and love for the great classical tradition (with the Second Viennese School as one of his key points of reference), is open a wide range of influences, which he is able to assume without resorting to eclectic devices.
The selection presented here brings together virtually all the works for piano Casablancas has composed. This recording testifies to a mature and very complete oeuvre, while undoubtedly heralding works of great interest yet to come.
There are avalable scores
