Ponce: Guitar Music, Vol. 3
ALEXANDR TSIBOULSKI, ALEKSANDR TSIBOULSKI
The life-long friendship and artistic collaboration of Manuel Ponce and Andrés Segovia began in 1923 with the sprightly wit and airy playfulness of Ponce’s Sonata ‘Mexicana’. The Third Sonata reveals Ponce’s romantic-era roots and his affinity for Chopin, while the Sonata clásica is in homage to Fernando Sor and Mozart’s delightful Italian operatic style. The remarkable Sonate romantique is almost like a lost Schubert work. Peeling aside Segovia’s editorial changes, Guitarist Aleksandr Tsiboulski’s performances return as much as possible to Ponce’s original manuscripts.
