Notes and Editorial Reviews

Déodat de Sévérac was a pupil of Vincent d’Indy in Paris, who approved of the characteristically French early Sonate, which includes a moving Elégie reflecting on recent family deaths. Le Chant de la Terre describes Virgil’s tense rural epic, the Georgics. The French Baroque is revived in the nostalgic Stances à Madame de Pompadour, and Pippermint-Get is a lighthearted waltz which takes its name from a mint liqueur. American Record Guide has praised Jordi Masó for his “prismatic colour and understated musicality” (Vol. 2: 8572428).
