Federico Mompou — Andrés Segovia Archive

Composer Pedro Sanjuán | Andrés Segovia Archive | Roberto Moronn Pérez
From the liner notes of the new FRESH! From Reference Recordings release Andrés Segovia Archive: Spanish Composers featuring guitarist Roberto Moronn Pérez:

Federico Mompou

Apart from gracing the Segovian guitar repertoire with the splendid Suite Compostelana, Federico Mompou dedicated a piece from one of his two-part works (n. 13) to the guitar and also arranged the guitar version (without a date) of the Canción y Danza n. 10, originally composed for piano. The underlying melody is borrowed from the famous Cantigas del Rey Alfonso X, which the talented Catalan composer harmonically rearranged in such a way that one might be forgiven for thinking that it had been originally written to accompany a singer.
