Description: The Sonata Mexicana is the same work as the Trío mexicano on the disc above but this performance comes from winter months rather than languid summer ones. Enríquez is as atonally uncompromising as in any of his other pieces offered above while Ponce’s trio dates from 1911 when he was studying in Europe and there is a fin-de-siècle style of faded elegance in its slow movement - a hint of the salon - while elsewhere a full-blooded Romanticism prevails, often colored by an Italianate operatic quality. Trio Mexico. Private label. No catalogue number.
