Ricardo Vines (1875 - 1943)

One of the first performers of the works of Mompou was the pianist Ricardo Viñes (1875–1943), a friend of the composer and the man chiefly responsible for introducing his music to Parisian audiences. Viñes was undoubtedly one of the great virtuosos of the early decades of the twentieth century; dedicated to the music of his time, he boosted the careers of many young Spanish, French and Russian composers (he gave premières of works by Ravel, Debussy, Poulenc, Satie, Mussorgsky, Balakirev, Falla, Turina and Granados, among others). His only known piano compositions were published posthumously in 1945 by the Institut Français en Espagne under the title Quatre Hommages pour le piano (Four tributes for piano). To this collection belong the exquisite, elegiac miniatures En Verlaine mineur (à la mémoire de Gabriel Fauré) written between 1938 and 1939 and Menuet spectral (à la mémoire de Maurice Ravel) of 1937–38.
