The rarities of Pianists Corner: Mompou, Cancion i danza n°6

Mompou, Cancion i danza n°6

Frederic Mompou, like Francis Poulenc or George Enesco, is one of those musicians whose music realizes the paradox of presenting clearly identifiable influences while remaining clearly recognizable.  For this Catalan composer, the popular traditions of his country are a primary source of inspiration. The Cancion i Danza n°6 is dedicated to Arthur Rubinstein. With its intimacy and purity, the cancion is representative of what makes Mompou’s music so special, while the danza, like all the dances in the cycle, is more playful.

Discover the interpretations of the Cancion i Danza n°6 by Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, Jordi Masó i Rahola, Clelia Iruzun, Gila Goldstein and Konstantin Bogino.
