Description: We’ve only known the first movement of the 1895 sonata until now when, thanks to recently discovered autograph manuscripts from the Museu de la Mùsica in Barcelona, a five-minute scherzo, 2:25 of a slow movement and 1:07 of a finale (with a tune that instantly sticks to your brain) get their first recordings. Trova, like its companion Madrigal an archaizing slice of Spanish Romanticism arranged in 1912 from a piece for chamber orchestra, is also listed as a first recording. With only the trio part of the established repertoire, this is a well-filled (72:25) compendium of conservative Iberian Romanticism that should appeal to chamber music collectors. Trio Rodin.
