Description: An attractive collection of works for small orchestra and for solo piano, all but one of them from Homs' early and late periods which were either tonal (early) or serial with incorporation of tonal chords. The dates range from the very early piano suite (1921) to the 1976 piano Diptych with the 1946-47 Concertino the largest-scale work, often dense in texture and full of polyphonic techniques.
