Description: His Andalusian background, Catalan training, residence in Paris and an enduring admiration of his ‘saint’ Manuel de Falla have all shaped Ruiz-Pipó’s oeuvre. These solo and chamber works offer an overview of his career, from the poignant Estancias to the Mediterranean-influenced Trio en miniaturas which also represents Ruiz-Pipo’s fascination with the music of antiquity. Infused with elements of French lyricism and sultry Spanish moods, Ruiz-Pipo’s complex but humane musical idiom is richly deserving of discovery. Wolfgang Reigel (guitar), Angela Sondermann (flute), Marion Michel (cor anglais), Drilon Ibrahimi (clarinet), Dimitrinka Tuturilova (violin), Aida Blundell García (cello), Arcana StringQuartet, Madrid.
