Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of the most ambitious and complex works in Spanish piano repertoire, the picturesque Sanlucar de Barrameda is one of Turina’s true masterpieces, the composer describing it as ‘my homage to this wonderful city of silver… where the salt spray of the ocean is mixed with the aroma of manzanilla.’ The varied pieces that form Trilogia include a grief-stricken dedication to the memory of his daughter and an entertainingly humorous finale filled with quotes from other works. This final volume in the Naxos edition of Turina’s complete piano works concludes with the tantalizingly unfinished Seven Sorrows of the Virgin Mary.
