On her Eudora debut, pianist Noelia Rodiles brings together three of her favourite Romantic composers (Schumann, Mendelssohn and Schubert) and three of the best-known Spanish composers of recent years (Jesús Rueda, David del Puerto and Joan Magrané). Noelia Rodiles commissioned them to write works freely inspired by Schumann’s Papillons, Mendelssohn’s Lieder ohne Worte, op.30 and Schubert’s Adagio, D178 respectively. The result is a trio of pairs of mutually transformative compositions: not only do the contemporary pieces take their inspiration from the Romantic works, but the 19th-century works also acquire a new colour and focus when juxtaposed with their 21st-century counterparts.
