Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jordi Masó’s critically acclaimed survey of Turina’s complete piano music continues to unearth exciting discoveries. Turina’s gift for evocative writing is explored in the early and little-known Coins de Séville which fuses Andalusían folk music with French impressionism to remarkable effect. The virtuosic La leyenda de la Giralda evokes Seville Cathedral’s bell-tower and symbol of the city in four vivid episodes. The streets, sounds, and rhythms of Turina’s native city infuse much of his music and in Por las calles de Sevilla and his final work, Desde mi terraza, their lure is felt with a fierce intensity.
