Cross Currents of France and Spain

 Paul Roberts, piano

‘Never has so much colour been allied to so much rhythm’, Debussy wrote, on first hearing Spanish piano music. In this recital Paul Roberts demonstrates the accuracy of this response by putting piano music by Debussy and Ravel side-by-side with the Spanish masters: Albeniz and Falla, who like so many artists at the beginning of the 20th century were drawn to the vibrant culture of the French capital; and the Catalonian composer Federico Mompou, who lived in Paris and was hailed as the natural follower of Debussy.


Debussy – Puerto del vino from Préludes Book Two and Soirée dans Grenade from Estampes
Ravel – Alborada del gracioso from Miroirs
De Falla – Hommage to Debussy and Fantasia Baetica
