What happens with valuable works by composers that have not yet been properly acknowledged? This is what Mexican pianist Claudia Corona asked herself when she came across Rolon's work and realized that his music is still widely unknown. Mexican composer Jose Rolon (1876-1945), born in the countryside surrounding Guadalajara, had the good fortune to study in Paris with such greats as Moritz Moszkowski, Paul Dukas and Nadia Boulanger and to let the tremendous musical wealth of that era influence his work. Fascinated by the aesthetics of this music, Claudia Corona pays tribute in this recording to her fellow countryman, who is mentioned as one of the most prestigious Mexican composers of the 20th century, yet whose work, among other reasons due to the difficult access to his sheet music archive, has rarely been performed, making him almost fall into oblivion.
