 Update me on new releases by Manen

Joan Manen (3/14/1883 - 6/26/1971)

Catalonian musician Joan Manén was described in The New York Times in 1920 as ‘an artist of fine attainments and individuality’ with ‘a tone of generous proportions and alluring quality’. Curiously, the article refers to his ‘occasional tendency to “slide” upon the fingerboard’, putting this down to an excess of sentiment in spite of the fact that such slides were, then, still a feature of many string players’ style.

Manén began piano with his father aged three and violin at five, making his violin début at seven by which time he was already giving piano recitals and conducting. Following studies with Ibarguren from thirteen he concentrated on the violin and began touring in Europe where, following his 1904 Berlin début, he became especially popular in Germany, being compared favourably with his compatriot Sarasate. He was resident in Germany until 1914.
