In 1977, Decca released an LP entitled ‘Concertos from Spain’ which coupled two contemporary piano concertos – one by Montsalvatge (‘Concerto Breve’, written for Alicia de Larrocha) and the other, Surinach’s Piano Concerto. The Surinach recording – he was a kind of Spanish Khachaturian – has never before been released on CD. Taking advantage of the extended playing time of a CD, this release includes two other concertante works for piano and orchestra – Turina’s ‘Rapsodia sinfonica’ (made famous by Eileen Joyce) and the ‘Rapsodia espanola’ by a composer synonymous with de Larrocha, Albeniz.
