Description: da Motta’s influences came primarily from Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Brahms. To this mix he added elements from Portuguese folk music to constitute a major step in the development of a national style. His last piano piece, a five-minute Méditation of 1931, recorded here for the first time, is in the visionary soundworld of late Liszt and Scriabin. Luis Pipa (piano).
