Rodolfo Halffter’s music embraces almost every genre but he was primarily an instrumental composer. Born in Spain, and after the civil war resident in Mexico, Halffter became a leading figure in his adopted country. His three piano sonatas rank among his most important works for that instrument, combining Scarlattian playfulness with Romantic and avant-garde techniques. The other works on this disc, in which flute or violin duet with piano, abound in appealing Latin colour, poetic moods and refined, sometimes spirited, lyricism.

Review By Staff Writer,Winnipeg Free Press,March 2011

Halffter is a key name in Spanish music. A pupil of Manuel de Falla, Ernesto Halffter’s music resembles his mentor’s attractive Spanish hues and rhythms. Ernesto’s less famous brother Rodolfo (1900–1987) adopted a wider range of musical styles, from Scarlatti-like tang right through to 12-tone and avant-garde esthetics.
