This work is a celebration of Andalusian culture, history and landscape. Some of the musical material is derived from the Flamenco tradition: we hear strumming guitars, chattering castanets and heel stamping interspersed with several snatches of dance tunes.

For me this a piano masterpiece. ...Martin Jones who presents a totally absorbing performance of this remarkably sun-drenched work.

Finally, the recorded sound is excellent.  Some listeners may wish to delve deeper into the history and aesthetic of these piano works; however, the succinct liner notes are most helpful. Clearly this release is part of a planned reissue of Martin Jones’ back-catalogue. Long may it continue…
