ROBERT GERHARD (1896 - 1970)

VOCAL FOLKSONGS

New release with Núria Rial, Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya (OBC), Francesc Prat, Anna Alàs i Jové, Anna Crexells, María Hinojosa Montenegro, Francisco Poyato, Seed Ensemble.

The composer Robert Gerhard (Valls, September 25, 1896 - Cambridge, January 5, 1970) is one of the most important figures in European music of the twentieth century. The company of virtually impossible adventures illustrates both its unconventional artistic conception and an extraordinary aesthetic evolution. Arnold Schönberg's only disciple in Spain, he explored remarkably different styles and projects throughout his career. This album brings us closer to the Gerhard who was seduced by folk and vocal music.
