Thanks, Riley. You know, I thought of you when I was working on these. They were written when Mompou was a budding young composer - just like you! :)


Thanks Monica :D I'm flattered! :) Though I think there are many difference between me and Mompou and I only wish I wrote music like his when I was 17.. :oops: :roll: :)

Hi Monica,
that was very interesting, since I didn´t know these pieces.

Good, clear and also expressive playing like we are used by you!

Seems that Mompou likes to play with minor and major shortly one after the other in one piece. In the second piece in the middle-part I could hear some bell-like and choral-like passages, I think. These all are nice and deep character pieces, also the "Two impressions".

Thank you for sharing!

Thank you, Andreas. Yes, Mompou has very interesting harmonies; I really love his music. And you are right in hearing bell-like tones - he tried to incorporate the sounds of bells in a lot of his music.
