Description: Three specific facets of Poncé's music are examined here. The first is his youthful concert studies, which are virtuosic, atmospheric and memorably evocative. The second, the Veinte piezas fáciles (‘Twenty Easy Pieces’ of 1939), consist of ingenious pianistic adaptations of Mexican folk songs and dances, some indigenous. The third element (pieces from 1903 and c. 1917) is his personalized use of Romanticism in the form of mazurkas, character pieces and the dazzling Bersagliera. Álvaro Cendoya (piano).
