 Update me on new releases by Gols

Xavier Gols (01/01/1902 - 01/01/1938)

It was in Tarragona that Xavier Gols (1902–38) was born, a pianist and composer who died prematurely of peritonitis during the Spanish Civil War. Ametllers florits, al lluny (Blossoming almond trees, in the distance) opens the suite entitled De les terres altes (From the high lands, 1936), the composer’s last work for solo piano. Gols based his suite on folk songs from the Priorat area (in the Montsant mountain range), hence the title. Ametllers florits, al lluny features the folk tune Ara ve lo mes de Març, treated with the composer’s very individual brand of harshly dissonant harmonisation.
