Here is the first Mexican romantic! We hope there will be more soon. Ponce was very romantic early in his career, which is obvious from the first piano concerto, which is very traditional romantic music, with its lush orchestral and pianist writing. Then he became more modern, and also more influenced by folk music. It is a truly fascinating blend which is obvious from the very first piece, with its very suggestive introduction. Then follows the very romantic first piano concerto, stormy with a dreamlike second movement. Then the more modern second piano concerto (unfinished) and finally some colourful piano pieces.
