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.
'Here, once more you hear that combination of folk melody deeply embedded in Andalusian culture with French influence deriving from Turina's study with Vincent d'Indy...in Masó you have an ideally committed and affectionate master of the idiom, finely recorded.' --Gramophone, October 2013

Nothing here is a first recording, but Jordi's disc conveniently collects all of these pieces in one place--a welcome continuation of his complete series. To those collecting these CD's, this disc presents more of Turina's pleasantly exotic and piquantly dissonant Spanish impressionism, and he makes his accustomed effective use of the virtuoso possibilities of the instrument.
Annoying, however, is a slight sonic distortion which becomes noticeable and continuous as soon as the volume ascends above mezzo-forte--a sort of slight "frying" noise that sounds as if the recording level was set too low. I've checked this by listening to the disc on three different systems, and it really IS there. It doesn't make the disc actually unlistenable, but it IS annoying now and then, and not up to the sonic standards of the rest of the series. Thus, the four stars. Let's hope this is corrected in future volumes.
