The Catalan composer Leonardo Balada went to New York in 1956 to study composition, and has been a powerful creative force for more than three decades. The unique ‘avant-garde’ techniques, dramatically as well as rhythmically imposing, which Balada developed during the 1960s, set works such as Guernica (which was inspired by Picasso’s mural and the composer’s own experiences of the Spanish Civil War) apart from composers of the time. Later, in the seventies, he was credited as a pioneer in blending the modern with folkloric ideas and mixing the new with the old in works such as Symphony No. 4 and Homage to Casals and Sarasate.
 

"...This well-prepared and carefully recorded performance does justice to Balada’s subtle gift for orchestral writing."

Quinn - American Record Guide - January/February 2005


                           Performance ****            Sound ****
"... These inventive, smilingly uncompromising works are performed here with great gusto, the rhythms and colours strongly projected."

Calaum MacDonald - BBC Music magazine - October 2004


"A Spanish modernist with an Ivesian twist... The sound quality is excellent."

Guy Rickards - Gramophone magazine - October 2004
