New Norcia: A Spanish Rhapsody

Presented by Australia's renowned Team of Pianists, New Norcia: A Spanish Rhapsody reflects the blending of Spanish and Australian cultures, both in the New Norcia community and in the selection of works on the disc.

New Norcia was settled in 1846 by two Spanish Benedictine monks, Dom José Benito Serra and Dom Rosendo Salvado. Salvado, a dominant and influential figure in both the history of New Norcia and that of Western Australia, gave the very first public piano recital in Perth, in order to raise money for the new settlement north of Perth.

Performers

Composers

Manuel de Falla

Manuel de Falla was born in 1876 in Cadiz, where he first studied, moving later to Madrid and then to Paris, but returning to Madrid when war broke out in 1914. Influenced by the traditional Andalusian cante jondo, he settled in Granada, where his friends included the poet Federico Garcia Lorca.

Maurice Ravel

Many consider Ravel as a major composer for the piano as well as a genius of orchestration. But it is always a surprise to discover how few works make up his total output for the instrument. All his compositions for piano can be performed in under two and one half hours.
