The Mexican composer Manuel María Ponce (1882–1948) is best known for a handful of popular songs and guitar pieces, and yet he left a huge legacy of some 500 works – orchestral, chamber and piano music, art songs and folksong arrangements – which together form the foundation of the Mexican national repertoire. The works recorded here – some for the first time – reveal a composer with a surefooted command of the orchestra, his early impressionism becoming infused with echoes of Mexican indigenous culture in textures of unsuspected richness.
