Probably the most important Catalan Classical piano work, Frederic Mompou’s Música callada, performed by the most eminent Catalan pianist of our time, Josep Colom.

Mompou’s Música callada is a very special, elusive work of the piano repertoire. Their pieces speak with a minimalist simplicity; as Mompou himself stated: “Its mission is to reach the profound depths of our soul and the hidden domains of the vital force our spirits. This music is silent as if heard from within.” The title refers to a poem by the Spanish mystic St. John of the Cross, who also wrote the “Cantar del alma”, the poem which Mompou set to music and which closes this recording.
