Cancionero de Pedrell. Pandora. Alegrías. 7 Haiku
- Apple Music
The output of the Catalan Roberto Gerhard reflects his attachment to Spanish culture; hence his Cancionero de Pedrell, based on Spanish folksongs collected by Felipe Pedrell, pays tribute to the work of his teacher. But his itinerary did not stop at national borders: after a period in Vienna and Berlin studying with Schoenberg, it was in wartime Cambridge that he composed the music for the ballet Pandora, choreographed by the German Kurt Jooss, a caustic critic of the absurd violence of the nationalist dictatorships.
This title was released for the first time in 1994.
