Product Description

Australian only release! In 1977 Decca released an LP entitled 'Concertos from Spain' which coupled two contemporary piano concertos - those by Montsalvatge (Concerto Breve, written for Alicia de Larrocha) and Surinach's Piano Concerto. The Surinach - a kind of Spanish Khachaturian - has never before been released on CD. Taking advantage of the extended playing time of a CD, this release includes two other concertante works for piano and orchestra - Turina's Rapsodia sinfonica (made famous by Eileen Joyce) and the Rapsodia espanola by a composer synonymous with de Larrocha: Albeniz. Decca. 2005.

HASH(0x9a8ff324) out of 5 stars Composers Well Known in Spain Dec 16 2012
By TomCZorn - Published on

Alicia De Larrocha here interprets four concertos by Spanish composers. Albeniz is, of course, very well known and some consider him the premier Spanish composer of the past century. Turina is almost as well known, but the works of Montsalvatge and Surinach are scarcely known in the Western hemisphere. Too bad, especially with an interpreter with the skill and perception of Alicia De Larrocha. These last two present us compositions rather more difficult to understand --- and much more difficult to play well --- but our pianist has handled these two challenges as well as she has ever done. I found the performances excellent, satisfying, and leaving me enthusiastic about hearing more music of the last two. In summary, this CD is in my opinion a valuable and precious addition to my collection.

HASH(0x9a606360) out of 5 stars Absolutely Stunning Dec 8 2014

If you are even vaguely a fan of De Larrocha's playing, romantic Spanish music, or the early modernism of composers Montsalvatge and Surinach and don't own this disc, buy it now. Equally noteworthy is the tangy accompaniments led by Frubeck de Borgos and two London orchestras that evidently arrived at the recording sessions up for the party. And its all captured in "classic" Decca analog sound.
