Maria Camahort Quintet: Iberian Colours


Spanish Classical repertoire and traditional Iberian music performed by Maria Camahort Quintet.

About this release

Iberian Colours is a journey through the relationship between Spanish Classical repertoire and influences from Iberia’s traditional music. Traditional music in Spain has long been an important source of inspiration for many Spanish composers: De Falla, Mompou, Granados, Albéniz, and Toldrà, to name a few. More intensely since the end of the 19th-century—and especially through the 20th as a consequence of Musical Nationalism—Spanish composers have been inspired by the lyrics, melodies, rhythms and harmonies of traditional music. The guitar, as the predominant instrument of Spanish folk heritage, was one of their main sources of inspiration.
