Avant-guarding Mompou - a kaleidoscope of contemporary music. Influenced by the French Impressionists, Mompou's Cancons i Danses are juxtaposed in the present recording by commissions from nine other composers, four of them Spanish, one Greek, one Czech, one French, one English and one German. This compilation of works reveals some surprising cross-references and at the same time helps to explain our idiosyncratic title: 'Making Mompou our contemporary'. One of the leading lights among the new generation of Spanish pianists, Maria Canyigueral has inspired collaborations with outstanding contemporary Spanish composers such as Anton Garcia Abril, Benet Casablancas, Joan Magrane Figuera, Josep Maria Guix and others. Her partnership with Anton Garcia Abril has been particularly successful, attracting high praise from critics and audiences both in Spain and the UK. Anton Garcia Abril has written Reverberaciones for Maria Canyigueral's 'Avant-guarding Mompou' project and Hoy es siempre todavia for her Horn trio. Having spent her formative years between Spain and the UK, she has since attracted a devoted following of her worldwide concert itineraries.
