Joaquin Turina made an outstanding contribution to Spanish piano repertoire, along with Falla, Albeniz, Granados and Mompou. This second volume of his complete piano music ranges widely in style, from the early Romantic Sonata on the popular Spanish folks
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Unquestionably, Turina possessed a natural endowment for creating attractive material, subjecting it to continuous development, and, through it, holding the listener's attention--that alone is an important trait of "sonata" or "symphonic" writing--each work creates its own form, rather in the manner of Debussy.
Liberal pepperings of seventh, ninth and 11th chords together with a coloristic use of euphonious dissonance give the music a popular, very 20th-century, flavor. Turina's idiom is influenced heavily by Debussy, yet always permeated by unmistakable Spanish idiom, harmonic progressions, melodic turns of phrase, and characteristic rhythms. His pianistic figurations are inexhaustibly inventive, as is his ability to ring endless and fascinating changes upon a single motif--I think of him as sort of a 20th-century Scarlatti or Soler.
This vivid music cries out to be played with imagination and highly varied pianistic colors, which Jordi Masó supplies in generous handfuls--highly recommended.
