With the expressive title of ‘Dipolo‘, the Verso label and the BBVA Foundation offer a stimulating program on this compact disc centered on the cello and piano works of a group of young Spanish and Latin American composers that includes such outstanding names from today’s musical panorama as Fabián Panisello, Ramón Lazkano, Ramón Humet or Jesús Torres.
The chronology of these eight works and their authors adheres in general terms to the two last decades, providing listeners with an interesting overview of the aesthetics and styles emerging in these years on both sides of the Atlantic. With meticulous performances by cellist David Apellániz, and Alberto Rosado at the piano, and notes on their works by the composers themselves, this recording stands as a significant reference in the contemporary repertoire.
