“HERBANIA”, Editor’s Recommendation September 2019 of ‘The Composer Speaks’

A 20th century Spanish music CD released on the Ibs Classical label.

«Already in the 21st century, thanks to the excellent progress of restoration and manufacture of copies of old instruments, as well as the interest of composers and instrumentalists, the key lives a new life, a journey through time and sound. Márquez presents a repertoire that invites us to enter a sound world reminiscent of the second half of the twentieth century, and rediscover an instrument that has much to say, especially in the hands of Silvia, an interpreter with overwhelming technical mastery and exquisite wealth of nuances His talent is spectacular. »

CRITICALS REVIEW

THE COMPOSITOR SPEAKS ? 02/09/2019

We started the agenda offering our recommendation in The Composer Speak for September 2019.

As every month on our agenda and in news in The Composer Speaks, we highlight some of the recent recordings for our followers.

One of these works is the cd “Herbania 20th-Century Spanish Music for Harpsichord” performed by the fantastic harpsichordist Silvia Márquez and published on the Ibs Classical label in Granada. The CD has been available since June 2019, but it is now that we have been able to hear it, and it has fascinated us.

HERBANIA: Tomás MARCO: Herbania. Joaquín RODRIGO: Préludio et Ritornello. Joaquim HOMS: Prelude. José Luis TURINA: Due Essercizi. Joan Maria THOMAS: Le Clavecin Voyageur. Ángel OLIVER PINA: Offering to Manuel de Falla. José María SÁNCHEZ-VERDÚ: Palimpsestes II. Silvia Márquez, harpsichordist. IBS Classical 122019

Spanish music of the twentieth century written for an instrument as old as the harpsichord. Used to relate the key to baroque music, it is certainly an instrument that goes beyond. Márquez presents here an impressive selection of pieces composed between 1952 and 1996. An opportunity to discover a part of the repertoire much more unknown but worth knowing.

On the one hand for the didactic component of spreading a repertoire little known to the general public, and on the other hand because that crossing of aesthetic paths between an instrument more typical of the music of the 16th and 17th centuries with contemporary aesthetics is simply fascinating. It also has the incentive to present several works that had not been recorded before. The album includes three first recordings by composers Joaquim Homs, Ángel Oliver Pina and José María Sánchez-Verdú, as well as works by Spanish creators: Tomás Marco, Joaquín Rodrigo, José Luis Turina and Joan Maria Thomàs.

It had to be at the beginning of the 20th century, thanks to Wanda Landowska, who not only interpreted original works, but also commissioned new works (including composer Manuel de Falla), which revived interest in the harpsichord.

Already in the 21st century, thanks to the excellent progress of restoration and manufacture of copies of old instruments, as well as the interest of composers and instrumentalists, the key lives a new life, a journey through time and sound. Márquez presents a repertoire that invites us to enter a sound world reminiscent of the second half of the twentieth century, and rediscover an instrument that has much to say, especially in the hands of Silvia, an interpreter with overwhelming technical mastery and exquisite wealth of nuances His talent is spectacular.
