Review By Jérôme Bastianelli ,Diapason,August 2011

Review By Joshua Meggitt,Cyclic Defrost,July 2011

Naxos have unearthed another 120+ odd minutes worth of early experiments and unpublished manuscripts. …these early sketches offer valuable insight into his compositional methods and, more importantly, have revealed some beautiful, powerful music.

For listeners new to Mompou this volume of his earliest music makes as fine an introduction as any, revealing a composer with a unique voice but one very attuned to his epoch: strongly influenced by the music of France, particularly the more restrained work of mpressionists Ravel and Debussy, but above all Satie. This a fabulous collection recommended as a corrective to those enchanted by the childishly simplistic pseudo-neo-classical peddled by the likes of Dustin O’Halloran and Max Richter.
