Frederic Mompou - Canciones y Danças
The twelve Canciones y Danças for piano by the Catalan composer Frederic Mompou express an aesthetic world and sound well known to the guitarists through the works of Miguel Llobet.
The same Mompou dedicated beautiful pages of his music for solo guitar.
The encounter with this music coincided with a crucial time of our sound research that has led us to buy two new guitars and make many technical changes.
Fundamental to this research was the meeting with the luthier Luca Waldner, an artist that starting from the spanish tradition continues to experiment in favor of pure guitar sound.
The entire corpus of 12 Canciones y Danzas was transcribed for two guitars by Carlo Marchione, our teacher during two beautiful years in Holland.
His incredible ability of transcriber, have allowed him to add the magic of the guitar sound and its resonances to the music of Mompou.
