Jesús Bal y Gay was a total musician who left something remarkable in each one of the aspects he worked on professionally: in research about ancient, folk or contemporary music; as a critic, in cultural spreading and stirring, and as a composer. His intensity and knowledge were such that with every approach to him, as through this fantastic record, he convinces one all over again with the strength of his senses, sensations and form. Rosa García Ascot is one of the most fascinating personalities of 20th century music. Due to her outbursting talent, Felipe Pedrell sends her to study with Enrique Granados and also receives advice from Joaquín Turina. But Manuel de Falla is her true maestro and mentor - he exceptionally takes her as his only pupil. In 1938 Jesús settles in Mexico and she studies in Paris with Nadia Boulanger, surrounded by European music élite. In Mexico, the couple attracts loyal friends such as the Stravinskys, while the Edad de Plata drift apart due to exile. García Ascot abandons composition and performing in favour of teaching, both in Mexico and back in Madrid in 1965. This CD compiles Rosa García Ascot’s entire piano output which is currently available. During the Civil War a great deal of material was lost, and her family keep some little pieces which have not yet seen the light.
