Description: This Mallorcan composer was part of a loose grouping of Catalonian composers which included Blancafort, Gerhard, de Grignon and Mompou - to situate him at least geographically and chronologically - and left very little published music. These piano pieces are undated, except for the "Mallorcan Dances" which are transcriptions of a 1921 orchestral suite. Folk music lies behind much of this music, some presented fairly simply and others using bitonality and Impressionistic touches. Joan Moll (piano).
