Composer: José Vianna da Motta
Artists: Luís Pipa

The piano music of the Portuguese virtuoso and composer José Vianna da Motta (1868–1948) absorbs Romantic influences from Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Brahms, adding elements from Portuguese folk-music to constitute a major step in the development of a national style for Portuguese classical music. His last piano piece, a Méditation recorded here for the first time, reveals da Motta in the visionary soundworld of late Liszt and Skryabin.

Luís Pipa, piano
