The selection of piano works by composers linked to Tenerife in the second half of the twentieth century puts us in touch with a poetic intimacy that is heard with great pleasure. Composed of these works in solitude and apart from any rupturistic intention, their authors denote different degrees of expressive ambition and, in any case, interesting technical capabilities, always at the service of communication and beauty.

REF: GR-9634-CD/Dep.leg.G.C.1070-1996.The song has been one of the genres preferred by Canarian authors since the 19th century, although many of these repertoires may be encompassed within what is known by "ballroom song". However, the content of this register offers us a very different, profound and felt lyrics, where the great sensitivity of its authors and their technical knowledge put at the service of texts of great poetic quality, canaries mostly, is manifested. The diversity of languages used shows us the varied musical world through which the creative work of its authors runs.

These two piano scores by composers of different generations show us within their peculiar languages the best that piano writing has produced in Tenerife. The sonata of Manuel Bonnín Guerín (1898-1993), composed in the 1930s, of a post-romanticism of interwar, with a great load of chromatic and enharmonic ambiguity, is very unique, while the 14 variations on the song of Canarian cradle, written by Armando Alfonso (1931) at the death of his father, the pianist and composer Javier Alfonso, are very interesting for the marked contrasts of styles and techniques that he introduces in them.

The symphonies of this French composer based in Tenerife from 1828 until his death, promoter of the first orchestra that had Santa Cruz de Tenerife and philharmonic associationism, are classicist with certain romantic brushstrokes. It also includes one of his eighteen spiritual concerts for the Corpus "naps". These works are a rare product in Spain of the first half of the nineteenth century, where symphonic repertoires are very scarce.

Tejera was a native of the city of Las Palmas and in it developed his entire career, while the Granada Rodríguez and Molina, who died prematurely, did a great job at the head of the orchestra of the Philharmonic Society of Las Palmas between 1867 and 1877. The two works of these authors have the peculiarity of having won ex-aequo the prize of the competition that the Royal Economic Society of Friends of the Country of Las Palmas convened in 1877 to celebrate its first centenary. Power's works, on the other hand, were composed in Madrid for the Concert Society.

Coral production on the islands is very wide, especially for about four decades when the number of choirs increased considerably. This record is therefore a first approximation to the Canarian creation of this genre, which brings together works by four living composers from different generations. The Triptych of Lothar Siemens, produced in the early 1970s, is the oldest work, while the remaining ones have been created between 1996 and 2000. Complex works with interesting sound effects some of them, full of humor, tenderness or elegance others, all sum up the Canary creator thinking very well at the end of the millennium.

The first symphony was commissioned by the Gran Canaria Philharmonic Orchestra and premiered in May 1993, while the second was requested by the director of the Canary Islands Music Festival for its XIII edition, premiering in 1997. With a very personal language that kept it out of fashion trends in the 1980s, Zoghbi's work in the late 1990s is novel, engaging and immersed in the new trends of the turn of the century.

Pleasant and attractive walk through the most endearing fibers of the decimonic sensibility, where the most diverse genres appear, from the lightest dance pieces, some virtuosic (valses, mazurkas, polkas, dances, galops, etc.), to the intimate and expressive nocturnal and romanzas, passing by some characteristic Spanish piece and some whim, to end with the most modern couplet-schotisch. All of them are carriers of Latin grace and charm, which Sophia Unsworth has been able to extract from them. The nine authors depicted here orbit ones around Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Power, Guigou, Navarro, Reyes Armas and Padrón) and others around Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Law, brothers García de la Torre, Hernández Sánchez and also Reyes Armas in its last stage), to which is added the universal figure of Saint-Sa'ns for having dedicated his Vals Canariote to a remarkable grancancionaria during his winters.

Record showing the most recent Canarian creation of duets, in which to the piano as a common denominator are added various instruments, string ones and wind-wood others, which in the recording have been ordered from the treble to the grave (violin, oboe, clarinet, cello, bassoon and double bass). Apart from the logical lyrical differentiation, they all accuse the personality of their authors, with very different languages and modes of expression.

 + expand COVER:

These are the three most outstanding works of the genre written in the Canary Islands between 1926 and 1950, and present very different approaches. Bonnín's (1927) is the most ambitious of all, imbued with interwart neo-Romanticism and very difficult to execute (no one had dared until now), with a lush and overwhelming piano, which displays a rhetoric of wide breath. Hidalgo's (1948) is also the work of youth, very original in its contrasted movements with dodecafonic, anti-Lllist or popular Canarian brushstrokes, which already give glimpses to the later composer rupturist. The Canarian Suite (1932) by Alvarez García, on the other hand, is a minor work with longings of the land, in which it gives the popular Canarian themes (arrorró, isa and seguidilla) a new harmonic garment.

Two works by two contemporary authors of a very diverse trajectory are gathered here. On the one hand, the dramatic-musical work (one of his few preserved musical works) of the universal poet, playwright and fabulist born in Tenerife, Tomás de Iriarte, whose life ran almost everything out of his land; and, on the other hand, the two scores that were missing on CD-08 to complete the short catalogue of the grancanario Mateo Guerra, who was attached as second organist to the music chapel of the Cathedral of Las Palmas. Of the three, Iriarte's long work may surprise to combine the declamation of an extremely dramatic text, designed to be gesturalized on a stage, with orchestral passages of deep feeling. It has the historical value of being the first preserved musical work of a Tenerife.

Monographic CD dedicated to Bernardino Valle, a prolific Aragonese author based from 1878 until his death (1928) in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where he was in charge of the Orchestra of the Philharmonic Society. Three of his multiple orchestral scores are gathered here, where he displays his colorful imagination through works of very disparate inspiration. The Canarian Suite is a high-flying symphonic score, in which the popular theme is a simple pretext to create an attractive and complex fabric; for its part, the Poem of the Discovery of America with its accompanying literary program, is a work of great drama in which the voice is absent; and finally, the short Spanish Serenade, is a summary of grace and good taste. This record helps to fill, even minimally, the great gap that exists on the Spanish symphonic production of the last third of the nineteenth century.

This guitar CD offers examples of the production of both efrén Casañas' disciples and the youngest born in the 1970s. Although composed of members of very disparate ages, it is the generation of composers-guitarists hatched in the nineties, that of the end of the twentieth century. It is a set of individualities that expresses, from the intimacy of each one, a series of feelings very heterogeneous and attached to diverse aesthetics, and represents the set of globalizing currents of our time, in which styles are mixed, there are environmental concerns, an ambition tending to a world without borders, etc.

The pieces are due to different aesthetic concerns, from the retrospective look to the dialogue with the new technologies applied to the composition. In the last work, by J. M. Marrero, a dialogue is established between the pianists and the electroacoustic support. In general, this whole repertoire is a remarkable contribution to contemporary piano literature for four-handed interpretation

It shows here much of the concert production of Tybalt Power and Lugo-Viña (1848-1884), the most emblematic of the composers of the Canary Islands for being the author of the famous Cantos Canarios, whose concert and didactic work also had national significance. This record includes works of great entity such as the Grand Sonata, the Scherzo and the Canarian Songs, Concert Studies, characteristic pieces and the Vals de Bravura, as an example of a large-packed dance piece. All of them are exponents of Romanticism prevailing in the second half of the nineteenth century and are developed under the guidelines of worldly entertainment, virtuosic exhibition and didactic exercise.

This CD includes the production of a heterogeneous group of composers from Gran Canaria from the beginning of the democratic era to today. We will find very diverse sensitivities and concerns; also a lot of poetic and thoughtful burden, and a lot of imagination. Of different ages, formations and concerns, they are all expressed from their most intimate needs of artistic externalization. Their results are complex some and subtle others; but we will verify that all of them are left over with talent, capacity and intellectual depth.

Having dabbled in various fields of musical experimentation, Enrique Mateu's production addresses the most varied styles, both speculative and commercial, with a significant burden of techniques derived from new technologies and always with a aftertaste "new age" very much in line with the times of the postmodern open culture that has been used to live. Performed in the composer's home studio in 1992, with the meager technical means of that time, the Pandora electroacoustic suite is a series of personal and differentiated expression that is revealed to us, more than a decade, as a living witness to his innovative and bold vocation, at the service of a scridial ingenuity and a new beauty
