Mark Eden of the Eden Stell Guitar Duo writes: “Federico Mompou’s affinity for folkloric music demonstrates his love for an art with no artifice – one that can only be described as genuine, natural, sincere, and authentic.” Mompou wrote fifteen Cançons i Danses between 1921 and 1978, all for piano with the exception of the thirteenth for guitar and fifteenth for organ. They are mostly based on popular Catalan folk tunes. Mark Eden and Christopher Stell have skillfully adapted these intimate pieces for two guitars.
