Notes and Editorial Reviews

For the recording of the Mignone Concerto Clelia has used the new edition of the Academia Brasileira de Musica. This is a first recording of the newly revised and corrected score authorised by Mignone's widow, pianist Maria Josephina Mignone, who had given performances of the work in years gone by. Also on this disc is the dazzling Concierto Fantastico by Isaac Albeniz - the great Spanish composer, perhaps best known for his ever-popular music for guitar, but in this work showing his equal mastery of orchestral colour and the full range of the modern concert grand piano. Albeniz dedicated the Concierto Fantastico to his friend and pupil Jose Tragó, who in turn taught the piano to Falla and Turina.
