Frederic Mompou, born in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, composed some of the finest piano works of the twentieth century. This introduction to his life and art presents a selection of his most significant compositions to illustrate how Mompou steadily evolved his own unmistakable musical style. Though influenced by the creative precedents of Faur√©, Debussy and Ravel, Mompou integrated this inspiration with the timeless beauty of Catalan folksong. As well as piano works, he also wrote some masterly guitar pieces, several examples of which are included here. This profile of Mompou includes more than an hour of music by the composer.
