Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason - 4F de Télérama
This album from the pianist Luis Fernando Pérez (a student of Dimitri Bashkirov, Alicia de Larrocha and Pierre-Laurent Aimard) includes the entirety of the Cançons i Danses, or at least the ones intended for piano. Mompou composed fifteen of them, of which the thirteenth is for guitar and the fifteenth is for organ. The composition dates of these works range from 1921 to 1961 for the first twelve, while the fourteenth dates from 1978, created at the Lincoln Center in New York for the composer’s 85th birthday. Scènes d ́enfants, one of the jewels from his catalog, and one of his most renowned works, was created between 1915 and 1918, in other words at the start of his creative years. Although “Iberianising”, if you forgive our use of this term, Mompou didn’t like to be referred to as a nationalist composer, preferring the term regionalist. “Not really knowing the true style of my music,” he said, “I’ve been classified as an exclusively folkloric composer, against which I had to express my disapprobation many times. My only arrogance is to believe that I managed to create an ethnic sounding music, without falling into the trap and excess of popular themes.” Luis Fernando Pérez is a regular of prestigious festivals such as Schleswig-Holstein, La Roque d'Anthéron, Richter in La Grange de Meslay, Jacobins in Toulouse, Santander and Granada, the Musical Fortnight in Donosti and Musika-Musica of Bilbao. He has been a soloist for the Symphony Orchestra of Barcelona and National of Catalonia, Real Filharmonía of Galicia, Symphony of Bilbao, Symphony of the Principality of Asturias, Orchestral Ensemble of Paris and Kanazawa, Symphony Warsaw, Symphony of Euskadi, the RTVE Symphony, the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra of Budapest and the Mannheim Chamber Orchestra, and also the National Orchestra of Spain.

Booklet
Isaac Albéniz's Suite Iberia took the composer some four years to complete, finishing it only shortly before his death. Consisting of 12 dance movements spread across four "notebooks", Iberia is a work culminating a career of capturing the essence of Spanish music and folklore. Successful performance of the suite relies on the performer having an innate and unwavering understanding of the Spanish musical idiom, exquisite detail, and nuance of ornamentation, and the ability to savor every note and every chord. Spanish-born pianist Luis Fernando Perez is certainly up to this challenge, having received the majority of his early training in his homeland. Perez's technical acumen cannot be faulted, and his steadfast adherence to the original score is quite laudable. From a musical standpoint, Perez's performance is equally satisfying. His pacing is spacious and leisurely; he plays with panache and ease throughout, brilliantly capturing the dance characteristics of each of the 12 movements. The most notable quality Perez lacks that one of his mentors - Alicia de Larrocha - possessed in abundance is a rich, warm sound. His instrument at times seems too clean, too edgy. A bit more resonance and depth, particularly in the lower half of the instrument, would be beneficial. © TiVo
