By turns dreamy, exotic, fragrant and virtuosic, the piano music of Frederic Mompou (1893-1987) has begun to receive widespread recognition from pianists around the world. Sylvia Shadick-Taylor, well known in Canada as an accompanist and accomplished chamber player in addition to her solo performance career, brings her considerable insight, poetry and control to Mompou’s music on her second Arktos recording. This CD won the 2000 Classical Recording of the Year by the Alberta Recording Industry Association.
