The present CD is the first volume of a new project by Columna Música: the very first recording of Pau Casals complete works. In this particular case, the album features Casals complete works for piano, some of which are world-premiere recordings. Pianist Jordi Camell has worked intensely on the repertoire and has benefited from a direct contact with the composer's widow. Furthermore, Camell, who has also had direct access to the original manuscripts, edited the pieces himself. In the pianist's own words, "We are dealing with music akin to 19th century European Romanticism, surprisingly distant from the language of our country´s folkloric roots or the French music of that period. Both harmonically rich and highly polyphonic, this is not drawing-room music and it goes far beyond the concept of accompanied melody. It is intimate, delicate and sensitive music that contradicts the stereotyped image of an impulsive and temperamental Casals. It is as though, through the piano, Casals found the peace, the calm and the introspection that served to balance his exciting professional and personal life".
