Description: This Catalonian composer's aesthetic, along with his associate Blancafort, was close to that of Les Six, his music short, to the point, sometimes gently ironic, employing the popular musical elements of the first half of the 20th century - all of this goes both for the songs which take up half of this disc and for the piano pieces. For collectors of the Poulenc, Satie, Mompou musical axis. Catalan, Spanish-English texts. Rosa Mateu (soprano), Anton Serra (flute), Víctor Valls (guitar), Mac McClure (piano), Montserrat Santacana (four-hands).
