Series Modern Classics: Hommage to José Rolón: Piano Works & Piano Quartet
What happens with valuable works by composers that have not yet been properly acknowledged? This is what Mexican pianist Claudia Corona asked herself when she came across Rolón‘s work and realized that his music is still widely unknown.
Mexican composer José Rolón (1876–1945), born in the countryside surrounding Guadalajara, had the good fortune to study in Paris with such greats as Moritz Moszkowski, Paul Dukas and Nadia Boulanger and to let the tremendous musical wealth of that era influence his work.
With this exclusive new recording, Mexican pianist Claudia Corona ― together with Michael Dinnebier (Violin), Sylvie Altenburger (Viola) and Walter-Michael Vollhardt (Cello) ― pays tribute to her fellow countryman, José Rolón, who is considered to be one of the most prestigious Mexican composers of the 20th century.
