Arcadi Volodos is a genius of the keyboard, and this is one of his greatest achievements. Volodos uses his superb technique to create many dynamic levels and lovely tonal variations, and he imbues the music with a sense of depth one might not always think is there.

Wonderful recording,which I heard reviewed on Radio 3.
Volodos is one of the greatest of today's pianists ,in my opinion,and this disc does not disappoint.
Mompou is a favourite composer-I already have Stephen Hough's Hyperion recording-and this makes for the perfect addition to my collection.
Volodos plays with commendable subtlety and restraint and the haunting,evanescent quality of Mompou's music is given its just deserts.
Highly recommended.

This disc received a very positive review in Gramophone magazine so I was intrigued. My first listening, I thought it might be a little too simple, a little too much like second hand Erik Satie. But on repeated listening, I've come to understand the music on its own terms. It gets under your skin. Volodos knows what he's doing. The only serious problem is that SONY hasn't made it available in the US and apparently, has no plans to do so.

Volodos is an all time great pianist and hear he is revealing aspects of Mompou probably unknown to many. Worth getting to hear music which will almost certainly grow on you.

Volodos never ceases to surprise me. Not because of his relative youth and flawless technique, which today can be equalled by pianists of most nations. He surprises me because of the intelligence behind his interpretations - an intelligence that leaves behind (with the exception of another Russian, Sokolov) all living pianists.
