Jordi Masó, pianoÓscar Esplá's Levante. Melodies and dance themes
Óscar Esplá: Levante. Melodías y temas de danza
Óscar Esplá is a genuine representative of the Generation of ‘14: in addition to his friendship with Gabriel Miró, he studied philosophy, which enabled him to converse with Ortega. Among his works, which are little known today, is Levante. Melodías y temas de danza. Composed in 1931, its use of harmony is Impressionistic, and this is combined with technical and melodic resources from Mediterranean popular song.
