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.

 13 CDs of great piano music February 12, 2018 By Peter Barlow (Pawcatuck, CT) See All My Reviews "This is the 13th and final CD in this series of piano music by the Spanish composer JoaquinTurina (1882-1949) played by the Spanish pianist Jordi Maso. I'm amazed and pleased that there have been this many CDs. All of the piano music of this composer recorded here is wonderful and with a great variety. The pianist knows it well, plays it exceedingly well, and the recorded sound is perfect. I recommend buying all 13 CDs, assuming they're all still available. If not, Naxos should re-issue them as a boxed set." Report Abuse
