Piano works by Jesús Rueda, a novelty from Naxos in September

Posted by Leticia Martin on September 13, 2009  |  1 Comment

With symphonies, string quartets, chamber concertos, operas and a great deal of piano music to his name, Jesús Rueda is one of the most representative composers of Spanish music alive today. His piano works, performed by Ananda Sukarlan on this recording, are on the virtuoso lines of composers such as Chopin, Liszt, Ravel and Prokofiev.

His piano compositions range from the dazzling firework display present in Mephisto, based on Liszt’s first waltz, to the two sonatas, the second of which is influenced by jazz and Bali Kecak dance rhythms from Indonesia, to the delightfully sensual tonal palette

of the 24 interludes, and Invenciones, a relatively simple piece with special appeal for children.

This is very personal music where classical languages and contemporary elements are brought together to create richly expressive and communicative music.

Tritó releases Alio Modo,by David del Puerto

Posted by Cristina Martí on October 30, 2007  |  Leave a comment

Alio Modo, the new release by the Tritó record label is a collection of some of most interesting chamber works composed between1995 and 2005 by David del Puerto (Madrid, 1964). The disc features brilliant interpretations by three of the most significant names on the Spanish contemporary music scene: the Indonesian pianist Ananda Sukarlan, the soprano Carmen Gurriarán and the accordionist Ángel Luis Castaño, all champions of the Madrid composer’s work. The CD includes the works: “Alio Modo” (piano), “Fantasía para acordeón”, “Cuaderno para los niños” (piano), “Diario” (accordion and piano), “Intrata” (piano), “Rondós” (piano), “Rejoice” (piano), “Sobre la Noche” (voice and accordion) and “Verso IV” (piano).

This is Tritó’s second CD by David del Puerto – after Boreas (2005), devoted to symphonic music – and is further evidence of the company’s ambition to create a recorded corpus of Spanish contemporary music.

Coinciding with the release of the CD, Tritó has also released the score of the piece “Diario” for accordion and piano. “Diario” is dedicated to Ángel Luis Castaño, who both premiered and plays the piece on Alio Modo. Very demanding technically, the piece demonstrates the vast potential of the accordion in contemporary music.

This past 1 June at the Teatro de la Maestranza in Seville the Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla conducted by Pedro Halffter performed the world premiere of this work by the Madrid composer Jesús Rueda. La Tierra is an appendix to Gustav Holst’s suite The Planets. Rueda’s piece, of a length similar to those of the English composer, is subtitled ‘la mare gaia’ (Mother Gaia) and translates the author’s personal idea regarding the planetary spirit as a “vertiginous turbine”. This is a virtuoso work for orchestra which stretches the limits of the instruments, especially in the formal aspect, and is notable for its intense tempo. The composition was co-commissioned by Fundación Autor and the SGAE (Spanish Society of Authors and Publishers) and the Seville Symphony Orchestra with its principal conductor Pedro Halffter. Also by the same author, Tritó has recently published the score of Memoria del Laberinto for violin, cello and piano. This latter piece was recorded on a CD by the Arditti Quartet with Ananda Sukarlan on piano, published by Fundación Autor.
