Joaquín Turina: Songs

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Manheim
The Naxos label has done a superb job in reviving the largely moribund fortunes of the music of Spanish composer Joaqu?n Turina, one of the major Iberian figures of the period between the two world wars. Turina was a conservative who worked largely in traditional forms, but the Spanish feeling in his music ran deep, and the passionate mood of his music contrasts with the essentially neo-classic structures of Rodrigo. The songs here were all composed in the 1920s and 1930s. Chilean soprano Carolina Ullrich has both the grain of voice and the big top to handle them, and there are lots of attractive settings of high-quality poetry.

All Music Guide - James Manheim
The Naxos label has done a superb job in reviving the largely moribund fortunes of the music of Spanish composer Joaquín Turina, one of the major Iberian figures of the period between the two world wars. Turina was a conservative who worked largely in traditional forms, but the Spanish feeling in his music ran deep, and the passionate mood of his music contrasts with the essentially neo-classic structures of Rodrigo. The songs here were all composed in the 1920s and 1930s. Chilean soprano Carolina Ullrich has both the grain of voice and the big top to handle them, and there are lots of attractive settings of high-quality poetry. The "Dos Canciones, Op. 38" 1927, are highly recommended. Turina sets poetry by Cristina de Arteaga 1902-1984, who wrote one volume of poems before becoming a nun; in "Lo mejor de amor" The Best of Love, track 9 he matches Arteaga's passionate text with a nearly operatic melody. That work has a substantial piano introduction, and throughout the set the boundary between voice and instrument is effectively crossed; the seven "Vocalizaciones, Op. 74," are short embodiments of a single musical idea, quite unlike more extensive wordless vocal pieces by other composers. There isn't quite the variety to sustain a session of hearing 30 of these songs at a time, but the set is recommended to lovers of Spanish song and especially to singers; Ullrich is clearly an exciting talent to watch.
