Anniversary Concert: Federico Mompou
  • Brighton Fringe

2017 marks the 30th anniversary of Catalan composer Federico Mompou's death. Born in 1893 and closely associated with French Impressionism (and the music of Faur and Satie), Mompou is essentially a miniaturist and his most celebrated works are all for solo piano. However, he did write the occasional work for other instruments and this concert presents his lesser-known chamber works for guitar, cello, voice and organ. With Matthew Sear (guitar), Siriol Hugh-Jones (cello), Arlene Rolph (mezzo soprano) and Johan de Cock (piano / organ).
